Once my money is through into your PayPal account and you cash it out, my Courier Agent will contact you in-order to handle the pick-up and delivery at any location of your choice to My Place. Kindly get back to me now your PayPal details(name and email address), If you don't have a PayPal account you can easily set up asap just log on to and sign up as its very easy/fast and please i will like you to get back to me with more pics of the rims. awaiting for the info.

Follow-up email stated the following:

Hello, i was just about to make the payment when I encountered this
problem. The pick up agent said I must pay for the freight fee before
they can schedule a pick up time. I've been charged $350 for pick up
and delivery and also $50 for the Western Union Charges. The payment
must be sent to their Headquarters in United States where they confirm
all commission payments made from any part of the world and the only
form of payment they accept is Western Union Money Transfer.I tried to
pay online ( but it requires a credit card
to make the transfer online which i don't have access to and there is
no post office here on rig ,I will add the $400 to the money am
sending to your Paypal account. Once am done making the full payment,
kindly help me forward the freight fee to the agent's Headquarters in
United States through western union money transfer. I would have done
it myself but I can't send money through that means due to my present
location and there is no post office on sea.(western union section in
most post offices)... I'm a little incapacitated but I'll appreciate
your help here. I will proceed with the payment now and email you once
am done.

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.
