My name is MR SAM THAMBO; I am the head of audit unit of a commercial bank here in CAPE TOWN South 
Africa. There is an account that has not been operational for the past eight years as the owner 
died leaving nobody as the next of kin.

My bank shall confiscate the amount in the account by the end of this year if am not able To track 
anyone that knows the beneficiary. I want to present you as someone that is known by the 
beneficiary so that this money would be paid to you; then you will be compensated with 40%.If you 
are interested, I will furnish you with the details that you need to know about the account. 

the amount is US$9MILLION (NINE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) all i need from you now is your full 
information as listed below so that i can use it to open a digital VISA ATM CARD account and load 
the whole money into it, but the bank will send it to you officially. For me to get this 
transaction done Please kindly forward the below listed information to me as soon as possible. 
Within 72 banking hours we will be done, then I send it to you by DHL

Please get back to me immediately on this so that we act fast and get the money over to you. I 
contacted you (a stranger) because I cannot do this with someone that is related to me or any body 
from my country to avoid suspicions from my bank.

I await your urgent reply.

Best regards,

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.
