We were approach by them via sms. They offered loans at the rate of 4%. After completing an application form a "Loan Approved" was send to us wherein the details of repayment was discussed. Then they told us that once we accept this offer they will provide us with bank details. We have then to pay an initial fee of R1999.98 into a Capitec account under the name of ML LETSOALO account number 1464847159. Thereafter we were told that a contract is being drawn from the lawyers, SADIOQ JAMES ASSOCIATE & LAW FIRM. In that "agreement" another punctual payment was requested in the amount of R4999 for COT (Cost of Transfer) which has to be paid into an account of FNB account number 62600277968 - MUSA PHIRI. Thereafter an email was received that we now have to pay R9 999.90 for the money to be released from overseas. As we queried this the man turned very aggressive and told us that we have to pay a cancellation fee of R2 500.00

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.
