Reza Farhady
Email Address:
Contacted me via Gumtree wanting to buy my car. Exact email as above. I was a fooled and believed him. Got emails from "Paypal" saying the lonely was put into my account but wouldn't be released until I sent money via money gram first. I messaged him back saying I couldn't send the money to his shipping agent until the money he sent had been deposited. He went on to say that I cheated him and that it was sent in the emails from paypal that I had to use my money first. I feel stupid for not realizing that I was being scammed.

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.
