Dear friend,
    I am Dr Abu Salam. the head of file department of Bank of Africa (B.O.A) here in Burkina Faso / 
Ouagadougou. In my department we discover an  abandoned sum of (US$18mllion US Dollars) in an 
account that belongs to one  of our foreign customer who died along with his family in plane crash.

 It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and 
release the money to you as the next of kin or relation  to the deceased for the safety and 
subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it. I agree that 40% of this money will be for 
you, while 60% would be for me. Then after the money is been transferred into your account, I will 
visit your country for an investment under your kind control.

 You have to contact my Bank directly as the real next of kin of this deceased account with next of 
kin application form. You have to send me those your information below to enable me use it and get 
you next of kin  application form from bank, so that you will contact Bank for the transfer of this 
money into your account.

 Your Occupation...................

 I am waiting for your urgent respond to enable us proceed further for the transfer.
 Yours faithfully,
Dr Abu Salam.


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.
