HELLO DEAR,
 
MY NAME IS MR FELIX AHMED, I WORK WITH A BANK HERE IN OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO (NAME WITHHELD FOR 
SECURITY REASONS). 
 
I HAVE URGENT AND VERY CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSITION FOR YOU AS RIGHTLY UNVEILED BELOW. IN 
JANUARY 2002, AN AMERICAN OIL CONSULTANT/CONTRACTOR (LEWIS ALTMAN) MADE A NUMBERED-TIME (FIXED 
DEPOSIT) FOR TWELVE CALENDAR MONTH VALUED AT (28.5 M)TWENTY EIGHT MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UK 
POUND STERLING,
 
UPON MATURITY I SENT A ROUTINE NOTIFICATION OF ACCOUNT STATUS TO HIS FORWARDING ADDRESS BUT GOT NO 
REPLY. AFTER TWO MONTHS, WE SENT A REMINDER OF SAME LETTER, AND FINALLY WE DISCOVERED FROM HIS 
CONTACT EMPLOYERS, HALLIBURTON OIL SERVICES COMPANY THAT ENGINEER.LEWIS ALTMAN DIED IN AUTO CRASH.
 
AFTER FURTHER INVESTIGATION, I FOUND OUT THAT HE DID NOT LEAVE A WILL AND ALL ATTEMPTS TO TRACE HIS 
NEXT OF KIN WERE FRUITLESS.I THEREFORE MADE FURTHER INVESTIGATION AND DISCOVERED THAT HE DID NOT 
DECLARE ANY NEXT OF KIN IN ALL HIS OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS, INCLUDING HIS BANK DEPOSIT PAPERS. THIS SUM 
OF 28,500,000.00 IS STILL FLOATING IN OUR BANK AND THE INTEREST IS BEING ROLLED OVER WITH THE 
PRINCIPAL SUM AT THE END OF EACH YEAR.
 
SUBSEQUENT TO THESE SEVERAL UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS TO TRACK HIS LAST NAME OVER THE INTERNET IN ORDER 
TO LOCATE ANY MEMBER OF HIS FAMILY. 
I HAVE CONTACTED YOU TO ASSIST IN SECURING THIS MONEY BEFORE THEY ARE CONFISCATED OR DECLARED 
UNSERVICEABLE BY MY BANK. IT IS THEREFORE, 
 
UPON DISCOVERY THAT I DECIDED TO MAKE BUSINESS WITH YOU AND RELEASE THE MONEY TO YOU AS NEXT OF KIN 
OR RELATION TO THE DECEASED FOR SAFEKEEPING AND SUBSEQUENT DISBURSEMENT, SINCE NOBODY IS COMING FOR 
IT AND I DO NOT WANT THIS MONEY GO BACK INTO GOVERNMENT'S TREASURY AS UNCLAIMED BILL

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.
