Good Afternoon

I here by request for your assistance.

I can't afford to call you directly however I felt i can express all needed to be said in this line of communication.

I have a friend (Bulelwa Gqibitole) 22yrs ID No. 9012040397081 of age, South African residents specifically in Port Elizabeth. She traveled to Dubai in 15 October 2012 having a an employment visa that started on the 20 December 2012. In her 2yrs contract which she never signed with the African Beats company it was agreed that they will receive a salary of sum of 3000 ZAF per month. Since her stay there this never happened.

The employee made empty promises and her other colleague Hlubikazi Jama up to today. nothing has been received. They have been emotionally abused during their stay there as she have been updating me in their situation. Last week they were told to move from their bedroom to sleep in the living room and that is when they decided they can't stand this treatment and imminently demanded to do home.

The ticket was booked for 10am today in Dubai time and as she was boarding this morning she was taken into some room and was told by the airport that her Visa was blocked by her un-identified sponsor.

She is now sitting at the airport not knowing if she is going to be arrested, sent back to the employees or if she will be allowed to go home.

I request for your speed assistance and with reply to my email.

Her number is +971 52 841 1721 and my number is +27 78 235 4377. Your guidance and assistance will be highly appreciated at this regard as my friend has lost hope and panicking hence she was never arrested before.

Best Regards,

I was blocked on my way out of Dubai on Monday, because a Arabic woman laid a charge against me after she drove reckless and I hooted at her!She stopped in the middle of the road and scold me, when I gave her the finger!! Since Monday I was sent back and forth to no avail and will see the prosecutor tomorrow! This is a petty matter and I would like to get help if they don't sort the matter out tomorrow! I've got a handy capped child at home and would really love to get this behind me and go home! My SA telephone number is 0825703327, but I only roamed it to be able to receive and send SMS's! Please advice on the way forward!! I visit an internet cafe to get excess to the net! Thanks!
