Dear Friend,

I am Barrister Matthew Baker, an attorney at law in London. A deceased client of
mine, by name Alh. Slamet Hassan died in Banda Aceh in Indonesia with his wife
and family as a result of the deadly Tsunami.

Please log to this website for more about the Tsunami
I am contacting you to help assist me in ensuring that the funds lodged by my
client with a Financial Institution Abroad, the Financial Institution did not
declared unclaimed hence my reason for this contact to you.
The Financial Institution has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or
the funds will be confiscated.
My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin
and beneficiary of my late client, so that the proceeds of this funds can be
paid to you, Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage.
All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin will be
provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this
transaction through.
This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from
any breach of the law. If this business proposition offends your moral values,
do accept my apology. Please contact me at once to indicate your interest.
However if you are willing to assist me in this venture I will establish a
verbal telephone communication with you and bring you into a much better picture
of the situation.

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.
