Important:
You're getting this letter in connection with new directions issued by U.S. Treasury Department. 
The directions concern U.S. Federal Wire online payments.

On January 21, 2009 a large-scaled phishing attack started and has been still lasting. A great 
number of banks and credit unions is affected by this attack and quantity of illegal wire transfers 
has reached an extremely high level.

U.S. Treasury Department, Federal Reserve and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 
common worked out a complex of immediate actions for the highest possible reduction of fraudulent 
operations. We regret to inform you that definite restrictions will be applied to all Federal Wire 
transfers from January 26 till February 6.

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.
