Howdy folks! I've been a long time craigslist wheeler and dealer, so of course I end up with tons of scammers. Sometimes I drag them along and mess with them in general, from a fake e mail address of course.

Usually I don't go very far with it, but lately I've been having some fun. I have them send their certified check to the local FBI building, addressed to the agent in charge.

One idea I had is to pretend to be confused, and make them call "me" (the actual FBI agent), and that "my secretary has been informed of your impending call, and you are to tell her the codeword "DEFCON 2" to gain our immediate attention, as your business is important to us"

On my latest one, and I don't know if this is common, but one of the scammers has sent me an address that they want me to send the money under via Western Union. Is this common? Is the address just used for verification purposes, or is this where one of them actually lives?

Is there anything else I can do here? I like to tell these people that I've shipped the item to the return address listed on the envelope that their check came in, and that the shipping will be charged to them with the delivery service drops it off.

I'm sorry if these are basic questions, I'm new here. Yes, I read the FAQ's and did some searches, but I couldn't find the exact answers I was looking for. Here's the last message sent to me, with the address blocked out for posting here.

__________________________________________________________

How are you doing today?Thanks for your trustworthiness in this
transaction now that you have received the check...

FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTION BELLOW....

your running arround and have the rest of the money wired to mover via

Outlet around your area with the funds and have it sent to the mover
who will have to make use of it for pickup at your location,Here is
the name and address to send the money to:


Name.. Y**** W******
Add... 2*** N**** M***** Street
City...Tallahassee
State....Florida
Zip Code...32303

He is due to be back in your location anytime from now and he has
informed me that the only thing holding him up is the shipping
funds.Afterward i will require the following information from
you........

1:Sender's name and address used in sending the money

2:The MTCN number that is the 10 digits number on the western union
receipt / moneygram reference number 8 digit

Pls also email me the best time you want my shipper to come for the
pick up and your map quest for easy way for my shipper to know your
house asap...

Actually, it's not very good to do that. The FBI are an innocent third party, and many baiters frown apon that here. The FBI won't go after them, its almost impossible to track them. They can just dissapear, and then you'd lose your bait.

Why would you want to bother LE with this? If you want to work with LE start by talking to a local detective. FBI would not handle this type of international fraud anyway. They are strictly a domestic agency. You are wasting valuable time by sending them a check they have no idea why it came there. They may very well be returning it to sender or simply shredding it. You are not doing anyone any good. Crying or Very sad

Get a mentor and read the stickies (you missed the ethics thread). Final answer. Cool

AFAIK Western Union don't require a recipient to give their address ... so he could be anywhere, even outside the USofA!!!!!!

I agree with but do smile at the idea of the FBI being an innocent third party

Don't.

If you haven't coordinated with an agent who would be expecting those checks, then you are just wasting their time and taking them away from something else.

In this case they are ITP.

Thanks. Very Happy

Why is that funny? It seems rather logical to me, they aren't the Federal Bureau of Innocence for nothing, right?
