Awaiting your reply soon...
Hello again,
I am glad to inform you that i have made the payment! PayPal said that they have sent you a confirmation email so kindly check the inbox of your email...
I had a little problem with the courier agent they said that they can only come for pick up after they receive their pick up fee in their head office via moneygram,but but due to me being in a wheelchair i'm unable to get to a Money gram agent shop to send it. I added the £260 they charged for the pick up and £40 for the moneygram charges,you will receive the total sum of £800.
You'll send £260 to them via moneygram now and here is the details needed for the transfer below:
First name: AKINDELE
Last name: JACOBS
Address: Kano 23407
Country : Nigeria
Please let me know once you've sent the money so that i can make necessary arrangements.


Unfortunately i haven't received any money to the PayPall only this email:

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.
