Hi, I am new and have read through the site a bit. The stuff you guys do to these scammers is unheard of and can be great fun. I wasn't sure where else to post this request so here goes...

I recently got an email from an ad I had up in Criags List.

I am selling Night Vision Goggles and the spammer was checking to see if the item was still "available" to which I answered yes.

They then answered:

mrjbensonx AT


Thanks for the swift response, just to let you know that am okay with
the condition and price of the item, am ready for its purchase and my
form of payment will be by sending you Check via UPS next day

I'll be responsible for the pick-up and the pick up money will
be included in your payment to avoid delay and to enable pick up
company to schedule an appropriate time for the pick-up at your
location after check has been cashed,as i have other properties to be
moved alongside with yours.

I would have really love to come for the viewing but due to my work
frame that might not be possible,but if you have the pics,might want
to have a good look. Please do get back to me with the following

1.Your full name
2.Your mailing address(Physical as Ups does not deliver to P.O.Box}
3.Your phone number.

This being the first email I experience like this, I would like someone to take it up and see what you can do with it and post it up here. I just want to see how you guys deal with this one so I will have a better idea for next time. BTW my username should be jonbabcock, the H shouldn't be there. Who can I contact for this? Thanks
