Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

The author said in his other book Mean Streets - Life in the Apartheid Police "that it is never good advice to see a lawyer for they are only good at taking your money and give long boring explanations on why you do not see tangible results for your case." It cannot be denied that hard working honest folk was scammed out of money every day and especially foreigners in Africa. This book offers an unusual glimpse into that shady world. What you read here is not fiction, but based on the scams that happened to his clients during 15 years of seeking justice for them.
