Timothy Bates contacted me via my Gumtree ad for a fridge, asking for my email address, banking details, Pay pal email, and an address where his courier could pick up the goods. As soon as I got the initial email I suspected a scam . When I saw the name Timothy Bates, I nearly wet myself laughing. When I got the news he was unable to inspect the goods because he was working at sea on an oil rig but would send a courier to pick up the goods for delivery to his new apartment( no address specified) I decided to look for similar scams online. Found heaps of them , nearly word for word . Good Try Tim but no cigar!

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.
