thats not a 419 scam, just a begging letter, not really worth your time baiting it

^Figured as much but wasn't exactly sure. I did send another short response in the manner of 'What's in it for me?' but don't expect to hear back.

Your average beggar tells a story that can neither be confirmed nor fully contradicted. If there is a chance the story is true, even if it is clearly exaggerated, it falls squarely into "beggar" category.

In this case, he is claiming to be an American in the US, when clearly neither is even remotely close to true. That pretty much makes him fair game, just like any of the African romance scammers who are sitting in Ghana or Nigeria, claiming to be an American in UK, etc.

With that said, the approach is so ridiculously over-the-top, I wouldn't waste any time baiting it anyway.
