Hi, Its me James ,  I really don't mean to inconvenience you right now, I made a little trip to UK 
and I misplaced my passport and credit cards, please I know this may sound odd, but it all happened 
very fast. I need to get a new passport, and get on the next available flight home. I've been to 
the US embassy, they're willing to help, but I'm out of cash and I have minimum access from here. 
Can you loan me some money and I'll be willing to repay you as soon as I get home. Please reply as 
soon as you get this message, so I can forward the details as to where to send the funds, i can not 
make calls over here,i will use a black berry phone  to access my email. I also have an ID to pick 
the funds up if sent via western union
i will be waiting for responses
James 




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.
