And all I was doing was trying to sell my collection of train magazines when someone from 'the UK', wants to buy them. Not practical I say but he says he can work out the shipping.

After some time I get a letter from Nigeria (nice stamps) with a different person's return, with two Moneygrams wrapped in pages of the Watchtower. The Moneygrams were made out in the name of someone from Sandusky Michigan and were for more than 10 times the asking amount. $1700 total! (Oh did I forget to say the last note asked me to pass the excess along to a friend).

I started laughing. When I stopped, I called moneygram and in fairly short order they were able to tell me that they were fake. (No big surprise here)

I've been able to buy some time (going out of town). I've sent the copy of his letter with the headers to ukyahoo abuse.. My question is how should I respond? Would like to innocently string this out a while longer (3 months now)

(oh, the collection is for sale in the cassified of a train Mag now)

Drop him. He has your real address and contact details. It isn't good to string along somebody who knows so much about you. Just stop responding and he'll go away.

Read the Stickies about baiting safe in the other forums here. Then re-bait if you want to using the helpful information posted.

Had read the stickeys and it was what I figured. He can't really do to much with any of my info (I have three addresses and phones) but I just be satisfied to get his email shut down on yahoo.uk, which I'm in the process of doing. Then I'll frame the money orders...

Next time I'll be smarter up front

Thanks

That would be the best thing to do ... Very Happy
And what a great way to educate your visitors when they come around and ask about those framed money orders ...

Filed a complain with Yahoo.Uk. Here is their response:

Hello,

Thanks for writing to Yahoo! UKIE Customer Care.

In this particular case, we have taken appropriate action against the
Yahoo! account in question, as per our Terms of Service (TOS). For
further details about the Yahoo! TOS, you can visit:

http://uk.docs.yahoo.com/info/terms.html

Please know that Yahoo! is unable to disclose the action taken on

Please let me know if I can help you further.

What they might mean by this could be a whole range of options but I hope they've shut his email down (I know, I know, easy to get another,..) Best (unlikely)option is that they monitor him and get him legally.

Howeverfor the sake of others, here are all the names I've run into during the course of this.

Micahel Thomas: [email protected] original contact

Supposed Source of Moneygrams:

Professor James Badru
122 Amina Way
University of Ibadam
Ibadam Nigeria

Name on Mooneygrams:

Tam Daven
154 Lexington St
Sandusky

At this point I'll wait for him to contact me and see if he has a new email, then I'll contact THAT abuse site and do the same thing again, and I'll do it over annd over until he goes away if it takes that long.

In the meanwhile, the moneygrammes go on the wall,.. they're a great story
