A True Story
Raymond James Cardi
Throughout history, people have been bilked, or scammed, and even killed for their hard
earned money. There have been many groups that practiced this crime. Some of the
organized groups were and are: The Italian, Mexican or Russian Mafia; TheYakuza in
Japan, the Triads in China; Muslim Terrorists could even be included in this family of
criminals. History has taught us that, much of the time, murder was an inevitable
outcome for the people who have become victims to these criminals.
I am a victim of the "Scam Letter" or what I call "Trick and Trap."
This crime is so commonplace today, that the U.S. Secret Service Financial Crime
Division considers it to "... represent a serious financial threat to the country."
In 1996, before scam letters became common knowledge, I received an offer to collect
one third of $33 million. I am one of very few who actually went abroad to collect a
"commission" and returned to tell about it.
Almost Dead is the story of the few months that lead up to my trip to South Africa
(the trick), the week I spent there (the trap), and my escape.
