One user, Natasha Tischendorf, warns women not to go to the N1 City Mall: 'I personally know of 3 ladies whose handbags were stolen this month. Looks like thieves are targeting the mall!' Someone replied: 'This is the truth. The thieves are women who steal handbags. My cousin and her baby were at the mall and when they went in the security told her to keep her bag close because they're stealing bags.'
The Facebook page 'is it stolen' is another good example: http://www.facebook.com/StolenWC?fref=ts. This page has more than 6,000 likes and people share their experiences with crime.
