My "I am smelling a rat" sensors have been buzzing today, and I have been right the last few times. So I will just sit tight and see. :roll:

Guys,
It is apprichiated that community members keep an eye out for illicit activity, as such vigilant online community action really does serve as a major deterrent to such. Although, experience does suggest that most scammers of such ilk, are both lazy and too fearless to notice - likely as a result of a lack of real world recourse for their online antics. Try get SAPS to take action... it is an infuriatingly mind bending process. We have to look out for ourselves, and each other... HOWEVER, as pointed out prior, when accusations and misguided suggestions of illicit intent are made with little more substance than mere opinion itself (no need to bother with names :wink: You know who you are and what you did... for bragging rights?) the real world consequences can have a very harmful impact should those opinions and/or accusations prove untrue. We need to be mindful that irresponsible blurbs, even on an online platform, can cause great negative impact on those with true intent.

From hard earned experience, I can only suggest that before one posts what might seem like innocent commentary and/or opinion, that consideration be given to the principle of cause and consequence, and that one firstly take advantage of the vast resources at their very fingertips (as they say, "google is your friend"). Sometimes a simple 60 second reconnaissance can provide a more compelling perspective with regard to fact or fiction.

Regards.
