Contacted our construction company for a new roof for a home he purchased in our town. Claims he’s in and out of the hospital and can’t get to us. He agrees to the contract but wants us to charge the full price then deduct a prepayment that will be made by the prior owner and have us wire that amount back to him. Beware this is a scam

A couple of things about this email looked suspicious, so I Googled the email address and it led me to this page about a credit card scam. I figured it was something like that.

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.
