FUND FOR INVESTMENT
 
It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I intend to establish in your country. Though I have not met with you before but I believe, one has to risk confide in another to succeed sometimes in life. I am Inus Mawn, staff of a prime bank international, In the course of my work I discovered a dormant account worth about (US$7.5Million us dollars) and This very account has been dorman for over 8yrs now after my investigations; I discovered that the account owner has died since January 2000. Since his death, nobody has come forward to lay claims to this money and recently a probate order has been issued and as such if nobody comes for the claim by the end of this fiscal year, the account will be declared unserviceable and the funds called to the government treasury.
 
Your name was found in our system data base file I am asking for your assistance since I have all the details for you to claim the Funds, if you can handle this with me, I will need your full name, address, date of birth and telephone/fax numbers. With this information, I will carefully work on the account file so that you apply for the release of the money as the next of kin. I expect your speedy response. As soon as I receive your response I will provide details to you on how we can achieve it successfully.
 
Regards,
 
Mr.Kamba Chris

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.
