Kidnapping

Warning : Women advised to look out for this men syndicate.

South African women must be on alert, there is apparently a group of men who are targeting beautiful women on social media. They ask for their home addresses promising them flowers. A one targeted woman on Twitter gave one of these guys her brother's address and as expected the man came to the address and did not find the lady. It is said that he parked outside that address everyday looking for the lady until one day she showed up in her brother's place and he came running to her car. She quickly called the police.


As much as technology and social media are major life drivers, also a huge factor in people's lives these days, the fact that they are a danger should not be overlooked. In a generation wherby children from ages 6 are already on Instagram, it may seem like social media is only advantageous. A very popular opinion. The truth is, social media has become a play ground for cyber crime, kidnapping of women and because it allows anonymity, criminals use this to their advantage.

Unfortunately the lady was so traumatized that she left Twitter for good. They are all afraid of exposing the man's identity and just gave out this warning.
