not sure if this will help; but I came across a list of links on the internet where you can report this guy.October 18, 2006 at 1:15 pm #20860cboaterParticipant
Have fun with him…. ” title=”Smile” /> Search wikipedia.org for scambaiting and you’ll find some helpful tips. These jokers are a dime-o-dozen… Some of the guys who devote their online life to this actually scam them! Goes something like this…
Scammer sends a check..
Baiter sends a long email dodging sending the product/funds..
Scammer waits patiently, writes more long emails…
Baiter delays even more, writes more emails, appologizing that it’s taking so long…
Baiter encounters some cashflow problems, needs $19 CASH to send the package…
Scammer sends him the CASH..
Baiter never responds..
Scammer gets angry..
Baiter appologizes profusely, promises to send product…
Scammer get even more angry – threats of violence occur
These threats, and photos of the scam artist are major trophys for folks…
Personally I don’t have the time or moral compass to do the above, but I certainly do find it amuzing and have no trouble recommending this behaviour to others! ” title=”Wink” /> good luck.October 18, 2006 at 1:17 pm #20861
Have fun messing with this guy.
I hate to say it, but even if you get this guy, the scam will not go away.
There are literally thousands of these guys out there, mostly off continent.
The best way to protect ourselves from these guys is to educate eachother and make this scam as well known as possible.
So everyone tell someone, and I’ll do my part by putting a scam warning in the classifieds section, if it’s ok with Jeff.

getting an ip address doesnt mean anything either… Its VERY VERY easy to spoof that. So flooding his so called ip wouldnt do anything.
Just ignore the guy, simple as that.October 18, 2006 at 4:47 pm #20863
Rich, you seem to know a lot about the darker side of the internet.
All the “GREY” areas and such.October 18, 2006 at 4:50 pm #20864October 18, 2006 at 4:55 pm #20865mcayouetteParticipant
I agree with Rich you don’t want to mess with this dudes if you don’t know what your doing… usually these guys really cover their tracks but again its your call… personally i would just ignore it and put it into my spam folder…October 18, 2006 at 4:56 pm #20866"mark.d":3braqc9m wrote:everything you need is here .
I’ve read through that site before. It’s funny and alll, but I personally would think twice before playing with these guys for a couple of reasons.
1. They are criminals and
2. I’ve got better things to do.
I’d just report them and ignore them. That’s just me though. ” title=”Very Happy” />October 18, 2006 at 5:02 pm #20867"cboater":1bhuko8o wrote:Scammer get even more angry – threats of violence occur

Really? Cause I have a problem recommending anything that would end up with threats of violence towards someone.
And yes I understand that most of these guys are from overseas. But why risk it?October 18, 2006 at 6:08 pm #20868cboaterParticipant
ok, maybe recommend is a little harsh – “inform”October 18, 2006 at 6:47 pm #20869mcayouetteParticipant
A bit of info about the existing programs for reporting fraud. PhoneBusters is an organization joint with the Provincial Police and the RCMP.
PhoneBusters is designed to gather and disseminate consumer fraud inquiries and complaint data.

Imagine my surprise when I received an email saying that I won an online lottery from the UK.
I don’t have to be a resident to claim it.
Evidently you don’t have to buy a ticket or enter a draw.
All I have to do is give them my personal information and I get the money.
My guess is that this is step on in identity theft.
These scams make me wonder why people keep falling for them but I am impressed with how many different tacks they take.
If you won’t fall for the one about Prince Habibu from Nigeria wanting to funnel 250 million into Canada through your bank account.
Maybe you will fall for the fake lottery.
If not how about a letter from the "royal bank" asking you to follow the link and verify all your personal information online so they can check and see if you’ve been hacked.
If it isn’t any of the banks it’s your credit card or paypal (whether or not you have a paypal account). If the bank thinks I’ve been a victim of fraud I better be getting a phone call and a request to come down to the branch in person.
Maybe you’d like some cheep Meedications. Maybe I prefer buying my medications from someone who can spell.
Of course you might need some Medications if you answer the one from the lonely woman in Uzbekistan or one of the former soviet block countries.
Of course the guy in England who wants to buy my snowmobile is one of my favourites. Lot’s of sledding to be had in England. He is paying me so much for it that I might even throw my snowboard in for free.
As dumb as these things are they must work because they keep doing it.
PT Barnum was right.
