Email from a \"marketing research\" company to do a survey on Western Union for $300. I do surveys all the time but they never offer money like that. That is what raised the first red flag. Then, when I checked for their website, there were too many similar companies with much more official credentials. When I looked up their street address, that it is when it finally flagged on another scam site. Apparently, the Western Union scam of years ago is back. It has been gone so long, it wasn\'t even in my brain anymore. Good thing I looked it up first. Hopefully others will too. Here is the email:

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.
