This guy contacted me months ago offering me a job and then asking for credit card details so that he could perform a "balance transfer" by way of payment. My bank told me that basically he wanted to put someone elses credit card debt in my name. This was long before I discovered 419eater, and I just replied asking him to "politely" go away, I knew it was a scam and he had been reported to various authorities (which he has).

Then today he sends me this email. I never gave him any details (except my name and address before I realised it wasnt a genuine job offer) but clearly he didnt get the message last time. If anyone has any ideas on what to do about this guy, lemme know.

Dear xxxxxxxx,

How was your day? Do contact your Bank to know if the money is now available so that you can proceed and do your assignment tomorrow morning.

Do keep me updated,

Thanks For Your Total Understanding.
