First time poster with an axe now to grind.It took me a day but by now i have figured it is a cc deposit cancellation scam.

Is there anything I/we can do to screw with this scammer? Found it in my inbox for my business website (note: now not disclosing email on site and using form for enquirees).

Hello,

Thanks for your response and Please confirm the grand total cost for 10 days for 6 adults per each for 1hr daily regarding what we requested in our first mail, in respect of what you said when will you be available so that we can start from that time.

Logistic agent shall be taking care of accommodation,meals and transportation of the adults and also you have to provide exact location address of your clinic for the agent to book accommodation closer to your terrain.

Hope you do have EFTPOS machine for credit card charges regarding payments.


REGARDS

Probably not a cancellation scam, but close enough--more than likely, the "logistic agent" or motel conveniently can't accept credit cards--you will be asked to process a transaction for well over your cost, then WU or MG the money to the agent--only the CC will turn out to be stolen and the scammer long gone with the cash, leaving you out of pocket when the charge is reversed.

If you want to mess with this scammer, you can create a baiting gmail account (read the info on this site about baiting safely) and asem him, chances are decent you will be able to pick him up if the email hasn't been reported yet.
