Did you give him your real address? If so, you shouldnt have done that. If he´s a scammer he shouldnt have your real life infos.
Can you copy and paste the header of one of his emails here?

That depends. Is your goal to permanently damage your personal reputation and your financial status? If not, do NOT touch any money from them.
You can't do much about the flowers, etc. if the florist was unwilling to give you the name about the credit card info and you didn't know what was going on at the time.
If a scammer gives you money, it is NEVER actually his. It will involve one of the following: A fraudulent check or money order, a bank transfer of money coming from an innocent victim (either scammed or phished), or an overpayment with a stolen credit card. In all 3 situations, it is likely that the fraud will eventually be detected--and the money trail will lead straight to you. You will very likely be ordered to pay back every penny you received, plus various fines or fees, and you can be arrested for fraud or money laundering, both serious crimes that can lead to very real jail time.
If you still have any doubt as to whether he is a scammer, we can help you to sort that out if you give us some of his emails. If you are already certain (which seems to be the case), the ONLY course of action at this point is to cut off all contact with him, now.
