I'm new to scam baiting so I need some guidance.
I responded to a job on Craigs List for a television producer. Got an email response saying they were impressed with my resume and I had the job to produce a segment for a tv soap opera to be shot on location in my area August 25 - 30 & they will send me a deposit up front of $300.00 (this is actually a normal procedure). Next email, that I got yesterday, they said they will be sending me more than the $300 and that I should send the balance (over $300) to the Production Manager who is out of town (yeah right).

Anyway, I need some creative ideas to bait these people down the garden path. Baiting people who need jobs has my ire up!!

Drop this one like a hot potato! It isn't safe to bait when your personal details are known to the scammer.
