Security Alert

We are aware that fraudsters are actively exploiting computers that are already infected with Malware to make payments on behalf of Internet Banking users.

The Malware being used is undetectable from Anti-Virus Software and as a result users would not know that their computer is infected.

The normal signs of unauthorized activity will be once security credentials are input a message appears stating the service is unavailable. There is no attempt to request a further security code because the fraudster has used the initial security code input by the user. The fraudster is then able to carry out any number of payments.

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.
