READ BEFORE USING WESTERN UNION
If you are ever asked to send money to someone you don't know personally, Western Union is a Bad Idea!
Especially if the person wants the money quickly, says he can't accept PayPal or other online payment methods,
and especially if it's for a big ticket item. In most cases, WU is the same as cash, which is why it's the
Scammer's Best Friend. It's not such a great deal if the laptop never turns up and your money is gone!

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.
