    Guys, we have all been ripped off some time or another, especially when it comes to paying someone money in advance and never getting the stuff you ordered.

    Well, this is not my case.

    I asked if someone could pick up a lens I bought yesterday
    See Thread ( Marine Aquariums of South Africa )

    Mocha said he would do so. Obviously I've never met the guy and the fact that he is a "newish" member to this site , can also put your doubts on the run.

    Now:

    He offered to pay for the lens (and I am talking the price of a skimmer), drove to the guy's place, picked up the lens and dropped it off in Richards Bay at one of the sites where I am busy working. This is really a first for me......

    Soooooo..... From My side: Calvin/Mocha, thank you for your effort and helping us place trust in our fellow humans again. You da Man.


    P.S.
    Then again, what else can you expect from a Fisherman and Contractor. Nice chatting to you, and yes, the Seychelles trip is definitely on my no 1 list.

    Again, thank you

    When I saw the heading - I instantly though the worst - My mind was thinking of Sean with a baseball bat lookin to break some knee caps - Well Done Mocha :thumbup: Our world
    desperately needs people with values.

    Great to hear .... We definately need more members like Mocha .... Just a quick one though .... Whoever designed our "members map" didn't put Mocha's location in the right place ... Mods plz rectify or this will tarnish Mocha's good name :tt2:.... Hillcrest can't be where it shows on the map .... Also I think hermies doesn't look where Umhlali should be ...
