20 South Africans Share Their Robbery And Scams Experiences in a series of mind blowing confessions below
1. I was once robbed ! it was on my second week ndilapha e Kapa and ndisenala mentality yasezi lalini . I had this tendency of standing on the street alone & get busy punching on my cell phone , My aunt consistently kept on warning me about that . I would say ” ngubani lo angava kubethwa yena tana lo anganesibindi sondi robb(a) ndakugqiba kubamdala kangaka , kona angandiqala ngaphi ” , I was stubborn AF !
then there’s this other day ndisuka emsebenzini , as usually ndihamba ndicofa i phone endleleni . I met this 3 boys when I was 2 streets down my house , they demanded me to give them my phone , bag & wallet but at first I refused . They took out knives , one hit me with fist accross my face ndanqubeka ngendlu ndandiyame kuyo . Zandikhaba kwaphela iinkani ezantwana gqiba zandithathela i phone , wallet (ine R567 for tavelling , drivers license & my bank cards ) gqiba zandikhululisa impahla zandishiya nge Underwear qha
2.Yhoo ndakhe ndarojwa ndise mncinci I think it was in 1997 I was on my way to fill up a gas tank at Small Bizness ePhillipi then I saw these two guys standing at the corner before ndidlule kubo they called me, ek’se yiza pha sani uyaphi, ndiyotha irhasi zabuza iphi mali naso is’denge siyayiveza, baythatha kanjalo nje

4.I met a guy at some shop a couple of years back and he showed me a phone he was selling and I checked it and it was working fine, We negotiated and agreed at a price and he asked me to give him the money, I took it out gave it to him and he gave me the phone, I put it in my pocket and we split and after like a minute I just had a bad feeling and I took out the phone and tried to switch it on and nothing happened and I looked closely and realized that he gave me a toy……I took my toy home and never told a soul.

I checked the camera and it was blurry, I called the guy and the phone was off and I went to check him on Facebook and I was blocked, i searched him with my other account and i found out he was active and still selling other phones qha he just blocked me. I asked my sister to inbox him and act as if she wants a phone and she did and he replied and they arranged to meet in N1 city, he went there and I went to I hid in my car while my sister was with her boyfriend in their car and he came and went inside the car and they alerted me that he was there and I came running and I cought him and tied him and gave him a few claps and got 5000 from the 3100 he scammed me

15.Mxit days one of my friend open a fake account and invite me. The nigga pretended to be a girl and made me buy air time for 2months. Now it was time to see my babe. The day we where suppose to meet i was blocked. 3months later the nigga confess to make the story short the nigga almost loose his eye and now we are biggest enemies
16.Wasn’t necessarily robbed like at gunpoint, the devils opened the car while it was moving (had hired a van moving from soweto to CBD) and took out my bag at the back which had my bible, documents,phone, ipad,money, stationery, photo album with my mother’s pics(may her soul rest in peace) and other necessities. The van was locked, how they opened we dont know only heard a text driver hootering minutes after saying people removed things at the back. It was alredy too late to get out and look for them also considering how bree street is . I felt like I lost a huge part of my life but I’m recovering now, went for counseling and had a strong support system , that really helped. Reported the matter and only got affidavits 😪💔 up to so far, I sometimes wish they could’ve robbed me at gun point , i would’ve found closure but ke 🤔 this was last week of February this year….
