How it works:
- Situation: in 2015, 550 such scammers were caught in 6 months!
- Opening: at a junction/car park, a local springs out of nowhere and starts wiping your car’s windscreen.
- Set-up: once he has wiped your windscreen a few times, payment will be demanded. If you refuse, he may break your windscreen wiper. There have even been assaults reported!
Places to beware:
- Johannesburg: carparks, road intersections
