You guys my little brother and I almost got abducted here in Mamelodi. I'm gonna thread about it wow. RT for awareness please. This might just be how people get abducted. 😭😭😭😭💔💔
So sharpo i'm on my way to go get tomatoes by a spaza nearby and then some lady approaches me. She speaks Xhosa but claims she stays in mpumalanga and works for a charity lapha e witbank. So she needs my help with moving clothes they're gonna donate from some house nearby..
So i'm like yhu hai they sent me i can't be long. She's like no no sis it wont be long just 5 minutes. So as she's speaking some lady who was walking behind her comes and she stops her aswell and asks her the same thing. The other lady instantly says yes and so they see I'm...
In doubt and the second recruited lady says to me 'hai lets just go help them quick hey' so the lady who is asking for help (lady X) asks us where we live. Im like nah i dont live here im just visiting my aunt who lives close by the other lady points some random direction.
So now what makes me suspicious is, first of all this lady who claims she's from MP speaks full deep xhosa. Im mos from mpumalanga and i know nah nah this cant be. Also the 2nd recruited lady says she stays in mams but doesn't speak sipitori? How now..so im like haii but okay..
So ladyX says the stuff is just 2 houses away(so from where I am i can see the house and it's quite close so im like okay okay) on the way she starts spinning a story about how she needs us to be honest and not steal anything cause they've been stolen from before (a sorry story)
So its like aight. So now the recruited lady All of a sudden pulls out two cellphones from her bag and is like no i just have my two phones and R100 in my bag i wouldn't steal anything..im like yea i have my phone and router too nje just this. She's like okay wait here let me..
Call my manager so she can go in with you guys, im just going somewhere(like i could barely hear her even) so now myself, my little bro and recruited lady are waiting in front of the designated house. So now im thinking of everything happening women being killed and and so i try
Spin a story like okay let me just go buy the tomatoes give them to my little brother and he can run home and i'll come back to help (this was my escape plan) so recruited lady is like haii haii they said 5 minutes lets just wait so manager lady approaches as she speaks..
And recruited lady is like oh ja you see there they come. Manager lady acts as natural as possible busy making jokes and so she greets us and is like okay they explained to yol right (she's also xhosa btw)..so she says to me, okay please just bring your phone so we can put a..
Sticker on it so we know it's yours and not stolen. The sticker will also have the amount we're gonna give you for helping (which is R120 she reveals)..im like nah you can put the stucker on my wrist (cause nah im not about to give her my phone)..so she says noo we need the..
Phone, she takes recruited lady's 2 phones and shows me the stickers pasted..so im thinking wait, when did she get stickers now ngoba we were walking together? Anyway im like nah nah not my phone. So manager lady is persistent. Now im really nervous so im like yhu ha.a..
Thando stop being this nice person, you dunno these people. So im like yoh sisi normally u'd help but right now there's too much dodginess i can't carry on call other people (there are men passing by the streets, i mean why call me a size 30 nyana to help carry bags when there..
Are grown men walking around. So im like no im leaving. She pleads with me and says i can give you the company form so you can see and actually enter your details (now im thinking aowa and so? It's just a paper i don't even know if this whole thing is legit wait a bit)
So now i pull my little brother and we're walking away there's a white corolla with dimmed windows and ama hazards on. And ladyX quickly jumps inside when she sees us approach. Do now guys it felt like i was hypnotised i start putting the whole thing together..
This is also when i came to the realisation yama language differences and how shady the thing actually is. Also how the story was Too perfect. And i figured the three ladies, ladyX, manager lady and recruited lady actually worked together and wanted to draw my little bro
And I inside a house where we were probably gonna be drugged and harmed..cause it couldn't have been about the phone, they could have just took the phone from the corner they initially saw me at.The whole thing didn't make sense, firstly ladyX was walking infront of recruitedlady
They came from the same direction, if you're looking for help, why pass the first person and get the second, only to then stop the 2nd and ask them too, nivela from the same direction?
Also the whole thing seemed scripted, recruited lady pulled out both her phones just by being asked'you guys aren't gonna steal right?' Who does that? And why did she insist we go help sooo soo much cause she actually heard less than i did.
And, it hit me later that that she showed the back of her phones actually and the stickers as shown to me by lady manager were in front. At no point did i see them exchange phones, we were walking together so how did she get the stickers that i didnt?
And ladyX said they have no transport, we'd take the bags out to the gate so that it could be easier for them to go into a taxi..so now whats with the white corolla by the corner? Which she jumped into?
You guys when i got home with my little brother i tell my mom and aunt tgis and my mom fumes and is like 'come lets go show me where they are, no one dares does this to my kids'..at this point im so scared cause i see yhuu mama will commit crimes here..you guys guess what?
We go to the very same spot which is literally just around the corner and the car is gone, the ladies too. There's nothing happening at all this is just 5 minutes later. And so if we were taking the bags out of the house, why aren't they outside the house?
You guys we were so lucky. When the lady was speaking to me the first time i texted my boyfriend 'something dodgy is going on babe'..he would've probably alerted my sister/mom and and. But still this wasn't enough information. The worst could have happened.
Guys please be careful. These people were women, they had a convincing story(i might have left certain things out), they put up smiles and etc. Be careful please. Like i cannot stress how scared i still am right now. I suspect they hyptonise people too so please guys.
