Compost scammersMon, 8 July 2019, 1:08 PM - (3 months ago)
A group of about 6 coulored men in a white open-backed truck filled with compost bags rang our bell. My wife answered and they spoke about wanting to provide some lawn dressing. It so happens that we have had issues with our lawn so she was more amenable to the suggestion than normal.
They persisted using well-honed persuasion tactics and she asked how much it would cost. They said R90 a bag and she let them in. Within 20 minutes they had covered our garden in what they claim to be 90 bags of compost, and offering up an invoice for R8000.
