We are examining the availability of the gift cards and customer service delivery in some of the retail stores in the country. A lot of customers have reported condition, arrangement and insufficient gift cards in some outlets around the U.S. Our need to act is based on reports and complaints some customers forwarded anonymously to our head office via phone call and email. Also, we want to evaluate these stores listed, to compare and contrast their services for further review and implementation.

NEXT STEP:
After purchasing the cards, open the pack, scratch off the silver label at the back of the cards CAREFULLY to reveal code. Capture clear images showing all the angles and full back of each card and send to the email above for verification. Also, KEEP the scratched gift cards for record purpose and wait for further Instructions on what to do with the scratched cards.

NOTE: Purchase gift card only.

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.
