Good Day!

I am contacting you regarding a special cargo that has been abandoned here at our warehouse for 
over a period of 2 years and when scanned, it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in it. From my 
findings, the cargo originated from Europe and the content was not declared as money by the 
consignor in order to avoid diversion by the shipping agent, and also failure to pay the special 
cargo non-inspection fee of 3,475  . I strongly believe the box will contain about 4.5 million or 

In my private search for a reliable person, my proposal now is to present you as the recipient of 
the cargo since the shipper has abandoned it which is a possibility due to the fact it has been 
abandoned for a period whereby a new beneficiary can be presented to the clearance department for 
claim and also my position at this shipping service. I will pay for the fee and arrange for the 
cargo to be delivered to your address. Alternatively, I can personally bring it myself and then we 
share the total money in the box equally.

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.
