Dear: Customer,

Information reaching us from our corporate headquarters here in Porto - Novo, the capital state of Benin Republic, states that you only have 48hours to effect your payment for the updating of your mtcn# 441-946-3942 to enable you cash up your first $5000 from your total fund of ( Nine hundred and seventy thousand united state dollars ) since you are finding it difficult to make this payment we have decided that you are to go ahead and pay whatever you have out of the required fee $265 since you are not able to come up with the total charge. But mind you, no amount below $50 will be accepted so we expect you to pay whatever amount from $50 and above. You are to pay what ever you have and we will activate your mtcn# number upon receipt of this payment.

Be informed that you will have to pay the balance fee upon cashing up your first $5000 also i am using this medium to inform you that failure to pay the balance charge will leave us with no option but to deactivate your transfers of which you will and can never cash up the daily payments, i want you to send the updating and activation fee , i will issue you the full information for sending the $50
asap you reply.

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.
