    I've also just experienced the same thing. Also a Macbook Pro i7 laptop. People are Peter & Rolanda Lemmer.

    Peter - 071 719 9750
    Rolanda - 073 433 5387 / 083 890 8531

    Peter also claims to be a doctor, lives in Cradock, Eastern Cape.

    Same story. They are both also foreign sounding but from Europe somewhere.

    Did you ever manage to catch them?
