    Beware swiping your card at these hotspots

    I have only myself to blame. I actually too, have such a card just for that. I became relaxed, because of all the "Points" at Bank Partner Retailers and I wanted to carry around less cards. KFC, doesn't offer Bank "Points", but that is clearly me, being lazy and could have carried around my...

    Beware swiping your card at these hotspots

    Got my card cloned at KFC in Golden Acre, Foreshore, Cape Town. The card machine appeared to be a FNB card machine. Showed TAP, then I tapped, then indicated I had to insert my card. Which I did, the card did go slightly in deeper. Thought it was their weird FNB machine. 15min later R10'000...

    Octotel (Octofail) - You Have Been Warned!

    This thread reminds me of my saga with the resell of Internet Solutions on Cell C. It worked fine until everybody else jumped on the bandwagon.

    Interracial dating in SA is easiest if you are a white male- thoughts?

    My perspective is, the family is just grateful she is happy. But you could have a point. It's also not something I asked for or would like to experience. It only happened to me once. My own personal experience says it is not the norm, because of a relationship from my past. A father was very...

I went to her family's home (North from Pretoria) where I was paraded like a trophy husband. The neighbourhood...

    Interracial dating in SA is easiest if you are a white male- thoughts?

    "White" men and South Africa is overlooking the uniqueness and history of South Africa. As a white Afrikaans guy, dating interracially. Here are my hang ups/stigma. Firstly, when I approach a black woman, be it she is Xhosa, Zulu, Venda, Tswana, Pedi, Nigerian, Ugandan, Zimbabwean, Congolese...

    Mo Nice deals.

    that's not really bad, right? Give or take 150GB a month for R150. Sounds like a good deal to me. If you compare that to 100GB or 150GB deals on Rain or Cell C, then this seems cheaper.
