Even if you don't pay a cent to this scammer (I guarantee you that this phony baloney transaction won't avoid some "hitches" that need upfront grease payments from you), your first response will include enough information for your identity to be lifted. Then the only people coming to your house will be the men in white jackets, as they carry your blathering being to the loony bin.
