#1. It is a scam, don't send money..but wait..there is more!!!
#2. Find out how to notify the KY Attorney General.
#3. Communicate with the scammer to try to get them to use the post office or a bank service. (These are covered by state and federal laws)
For instance....I've got you CASH were can I mail it?
For instance...Have your representative call me to pick up the money.
For instance...Send me a preapaid FEDEX envelope and I'll send you the money. (seeking return address)
Get them to use one of the services that are governed by USA law. Then the Attorney General can take action. You may want to set up a Google Voice account so all calls can be recorded.
So, if you have time, have some fun. See if you can get them to spend some of their money. Keep a copy of everything including the caller ID when they call you to implore you to follow their instructions. Have fun with it.
I've got three FEDEX envelops at $5 a pop. No, I don't feel guilty getting a Nigerian scammer to pay for these FedEx mailers. Yep, I got the caller ID, it was NIGERIA! See if you can top that.
