I think your fist point to building a case is finding out and listing his ailiases under which he operated if any. Because if you are going to finger him with cases which he can prove he had no part in then he may slip through those which he could be found to be linked to. And I think the question which will prove vital is, is the guy really Andres from Plett or is that an ailais ?

So many have said they have or will catch these fraudsters out but not one has made claims to any success so well done to you.

Are there any logistical costs to you in chasing him down ?

I will donate to the cause, but only if I can pay via e-wallet..... 8)

Please forward your e-wallet details as well as your credit card number and your pin for fica purposes to verify that you are the account holder....... :lol:

How long would you think it will take before the scammer reads this and disapear off the radar or change his identity?

What I would like to know how does one link the ewallet payment to the scammer the no is not registered to the scammers name.In some cases only 50% is payed not the whole amount. How does one explain that.I see a ewallet payment as a difficult case to prove as in a previos post.
