I was selling my car and maybe 30 minutes after i put it up this guy contacted me, and i thought sweet this is looking promising so i told him the price and 5 minutes later he was saying he was the happy and wanted to send a courier to pick it up. Obviously this sound a bit too suspicious so a googled his name and this came up ( so i immediately cut of communication with him. Thanks scamalot.

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.
