URGENT: PayPal System Problems
Dear PayPal User,

Unfortunately today we have had some trouble with one of our computer systems. While the trouble appears to be minor, we are not taking the necessary precautions. We have decided to take the affected system offline and replace it with a new system. Unfortunately this has caused us to lose member data and information. Please follow the link below and log into your account to re-enter your information to be assured none of your prior information has been lost. Please Note: Account balances have not been affected.

Because of the inconvenience, we will be providing all users that repair their missing data their next two incoming transfers for free! You will pay no fees for your next two incoming transfers*.

Thank you for using PayPal!

* - If fees would normally apply, you will not pay anything for the next two incoming transfers you receive.

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.
