Dear Friend.,
 
 I am Thomas James., A Portugal national I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It has 
defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live. I am 
very rich, but was never generous; I have given most of my assets to my immediate family members.
 
I have decided to give alms to charity organizations. I cannot do this myself
anymore because of my health. I once asked members of my family to give some money to charity 
organizations, they refused and kept the money. I have a huge cash deposit of Eighteen Million 
dollars with a finance House abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch 
it to charity organizations. You will take out 20% of these funds for your assistance.

Thomas 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.
