When it sounds “too good” often it is | South Africa

I am gathering information from several sources for a video that will expose a scheme currently being promoted on Youtube to get South Africans out of the country. The scheme is being run by a man hiding in the shadows – please do not part with any money to a third party organisation until I publish the video later this week.

IN THE MEANTIME DO NOT PART WITH ANY MONEY!! AFTER ALL YOU ARE IN LOCK DOWN.
