Oh god where to start!.. Well firstly I received an email from someone called SHARON SIMPSON (email address olanre3333333@gmail.com) telling me that her friend needs to use my childcare service for the following month of july. She provided me with Anitas email address and told me to contact her direct to provide her with details of my service etc.

I then emailed her a list of my prices, available dates, link to my websites, anita replied from her email (anitarichard1233@yahoo.fr) telling me that she will book her two children in and asked me to send her my prices and what the total amount the childcare would cost, she advised me she would pay it in full or a 10% deposit whatever I would prefer to secure the place, she asked me to give her full name to make the cheque out to, my address to send it and my phone number for when she gets to the uk (from france) she will be able to ring me for directions to my house! I stupidly supplied her with these. Her plan is to send me a cheque for a larger amount of money than I have asked for, she will then ask me to refund her and send her a cheque back for the difference. Her original cheque will bounce therefore walking away with your money! I am just waiting to receive her cheque now! I have called the police and logged it with the fraud squad and taken a case out. Any mail from france I forward straight to them now.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
