This guy text me and said that he needed to urgently buy a car we had listed on our local garage sale internet service. The car has been torn apart for years, and the buyer would have to rebuild the engine, so I could not see how it could be so \"urgent.\" He refused to let me call him, he said he wanted to make a deal through email. So I searched his email address and found two references on this sight. Thanks!

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.
