A Facebook post from someone near George is going viral after being shared nearly two thousand times since the 19th January where a user posted the contract his gardener received after purchasing a washing machine from well known furniture store Lewis. The value of the washing machine was R5999.99, but the gardener was roped into extra costs that would ultimately set him back a ridiculous R17955.
Here’s the copy of the contract.
And this is the what the user posted along with that pic.
It has been shared over 1700 times and has over 1000 comments.
Lewis has since responded and said that “interest and all costs were charged in accordance with the National Credit Act and that all processes required by the act and its related regulations were followed” [Fin24]
