Scam Jason & Rosemary - Mugged, need money for bus


Jason approached me in the parking area of the King Shaka International Airport stating that he was mugged. He asks for a lift wanting to go to his Mother in Newcastle. He sounds very convincing and is actually trembling from the after-shock of the apparent mugging. He asks for a lift and requests to use your phone to call his mother (Rosemary) who (apparently) works at the Hospital at New Castle. He claims to be from the Navy / Air force at Simonstown and tried to call them too. Eventually he calls the Intercity bus and asks prices for a ticket from Mvoti Ultra City to Eshowe and then to New Castle. I though I was being a good samaritan and "borrowed" him R700 for his ticket and for some food, as I felt sorry for him. He even said that his mother will call me back to thank me personally once he arrives at New Castle. I hate it that this guy takes advantage of someone's kindness by blatantly lying and scamming people, using crime in South Africa as his tool to gain your sympathy. Please watch out for him, Indian fellow Jason
