Dear Friend,

I am James Barry, an army contractor attached to the army force in Iraq.

On the 27th day of June 2009, I and my men discovered a metal box containing US Dollars, which is 
a total figure mark $8.2 Million. We believe the box was owned and linked to late Saddam Hussein.

We hid the box containing the money in untraceable location, and we are in desperate need of 
a reliable and trustworthy person whom will receive and secure the box containing the US Dollars. 
We can't afford to leave the box here in Iraq for any reason since Iraq is getting unsafe and 
dangerous 
every day. We have no idea what could happen next as everything remains inconclusive at this point.

I am fully aware of what your thought would be, I will forward you my picture as well as my 
Identity, for 
you to know who you are dealing with.

You will be compensated with 15% of this fund, please assure me of your keeping this topmost secret 
so 
that my job would not be jeopardized.

Regards,
James Barry




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.
