CONNIE works very hard and spends most of her free time at home.
However, she wanted a man and organised to meet up with a guy named Jacky. She met him on a dating site called Badoo.
This turned out to be a huge mistake, as she says Jacky ended up stealing her car!
Constance “Connie” Moronwe (44) from Diepkloof in Soweto said: “When we started chatting online he knew just what to say.
“He always made me smile.”
She said they started chatting in June and soon they were talking every day. They then decided to meet.
“Jacky came to my house and spent almost five hours with my kids. He told me his real name was Jacob Chiloane and he said I was his angel,” she said.
Last Thursday Jacky called her again and said he wanted to take her and the kids to Maponya Mall as he had been paid. However, he arrived before the kids had returned from school and Connie ended up going with him alone. She said she was suspicious when he arrived on foot, as he had told her he drove an Audi A4, but he said his brother had borrowed it.
They ended up going to the mall in Connie’s black Toyota RunX and Jacky insisted on driving, which she agreed to.
He took her to Pick n Pay and told her to fill a trolley, which he would pay for.
“He still had the car keys in his pocket when he told me he was going to stand in the queue while I chose what I wanted.
“But he ended up going outside and driving away with my car,” said Connie.
Kliptown police spokeswoman Constable Thuli Ngwenya said a case of motor vehicle theft was opened.
