Judas Chavalala from MJ Pools poses as a pool repair man, well spoken and fluent in Afrikaans and English. He purports to be a Christian and member of the ZCC (Dove). He is a skilful and accomplished liar and thief. After a day or two working he disappears with the deposit, and I was surprised to learn that this is no crime. When I threatened him with the police, he laughed at me, he knows exactly what to do and say and probably has been doing this for years. I lost almost R30000.
Motto: NEVER EVER GIVE A DEPOSIT for work to be done.
