Category:  Employment/Job
Please allow me to intimate you with a business transaction that I believe will be of benefit to both of us. My name is john williams I am looking for a reliable person who can assist me and my colleagues in the claim and transfer of some amount of money.
This amount was realized from over-invoiced contract awarded by my Ministry
in 2006 to expatriate companies. The contract amount was deliberately overestimated to read more than the actual cost of the project thus leaving
a surplus. However, as civil servants we cannot claim this money without a foreign partner who will act as the contractor.

When you write back I can give you further details about this transaction. We are willing to give you 25% of the total amount after the transfer, the rest will be held and released to us when I come over to you.
With kind 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.
