A lady consultant contacted our company to say that we are part of their database and we need to renew our membership. She was very forceful and phoned more than once in that same week. According to her there were no fees involved. I had the contract signed not really reading the fine-print as it was extremely small.(Always read the fine-print!!!)

A few days after, we received an Invoice of around R10 000 to be paid, whereby I returned an e-mail cancelling the contract. A lady by the name of Happy phoned back and we told her that we saw that they were part of a scam, whereby she hung up the phone.

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.
