Dear Friend, My name is John Otto,the regional manager of a branch of International Commercial Bank Ghana and i am a Ghanaian married with two kids. I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us. As the regional manager of my bank,it's my duty to send financial reports to my head office in the capital city of Accra. On the course of last year 2014 end of the year report,I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made One Million Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars (1,550.000.00) of which my head office is not aware of and can not be aware of it I have since then PLACED this fund on a SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary. As an officer of the bank,I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am compelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part 20% of this fund to you while 80% shall be for me. I do need to assure you that there are practically no risk involved in this transaction It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund. If you accept this offer,I will appreciate your timely response. Please reply. With regards, John

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.
