I've been looking for apartments recently and one looked too good to be true: great location, awesome photos & low price. I emailed to find out more and sure enough it started seeming clear this was a scam:

-removed-

This didn't seem right, so I told him I wouldn't put any money down without seeing the place first.

-removed-

Anyways, I'd like to teach this lad a lesson, but I've never scam-baited before. Any help, what should I do?

Edit: I removed what the lad said to protect details in case I try to bait him anonymously.

Hi captcrunch and welcome to eater.

If he has your real life details - DROP him immediately. You can then set up an anonymous email (ie: gmail etc.) and start the bait again. Read the stickies at the top of each forum, read Eater Uni and apply for a mentor

Hello.

Conga is correct. Since it appears this person might have your RL (real life) details, it is best to drop him immediately.

Then create a safe baiting email address using fictitious details and then begin a baiting career, after having read the stickies, guidelines at start of each forum thread, Eater U and apply for a mentor.

There is a signup panel in Help Hints & Tips to sign up for a mentor. If you get a mentor that has not logged in for a while, it is OK to dis-enroll and re-enroll.

And welcome to the wonderful, whacky world of baiting.

Cool thanks for the advice, not baiting him since he has RL details seems obvious, but I completely overlooked that.

Could the local Police help in this situation? Probably won't be able to track him though... Confused

Could you post the details at Scamwarners? That'll help anyone else targeted by the scammer to recognize him.
