    scam Stop wasting your time. ... or maybe keep at it. That will divert his time from scheming others.

    Of course he did.
    On to the next victim.
    Perhaps he won't try scamming a computer tech again?

    His tenacity was unbelievable. Even when I told him I traced his IP to the US, he still kept at it.

    I just got a text this morning from a Chicago area code that was very similar to this scammer's original text. The new one said:

    "good morning do you available for computer repair".

    Yep.

    The only reason I insisted on an e-transfer, as I really wanted to see what site opened when I clicked "Accept'.
