Dear client of Halifax Bank ,


Today we had some trouble with one of our computer systems.
While the trouble appears to be minor, we are not taking any chances. We decided to take the troubled system offline and replace it with a new system.
Unfortunately this caused us to lose some member data. Please follow the link below and log into your account to make sure your information is not affected.

Because of the inconvenience this causes we are giving all users that repair their missing data their next two incoming transfers for free!
You will pay no fees for your next two incoming transfers*.

Best wishes ,
Jimm A. William ,
Online Security Advisor,
Halifax Bank plc.

*If fees would normally apply, you will not pay.


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.
