I've recently encountered a very elaborate e-mail scam.
Basically, these guys have promised me to send me an ATM card with $2,5 mil on it in exchange for a shipping fee.
I've sent them a baited link to grab their IP address, but they are extremely cautious and use a VPN. At this point, they are convinced I have paid the fee and are desperate to click any link or open any file I send them.
They have a very convincing courier website, they even gave me a working tracking number for my ATM card.
I've done some digging, but haven't found out much about them.
Ideally, we could flood their e-mail addresses or rat them somehow. Since I'm quite new to scambaiting, I'm running out of ideas.
Can anybody help out?

What's the site URL?
There's an entire subforum dedicated to this sort of work here at Eater but it's unattended at the moment. Your best bet is to go directly to https://forum.aa419.org and report it there. Make sure to also tell them the tracking ID, because they might be able to use it to try and find more victims hidden on their website.
Fake couriers are quite common in "delivery" scams such as the one you've encountered. The whole point of those sites is to help bolster credibility. Because of course, if you did have any doubts about the scam, sending the victim a website might just push them into credibility.
