what up

I never really cared about those scam emails that are going around all over the place, but now people at my work are starting to receive them..

The message will start about some stupid thing and the SCAMMER will actually reply a time or two before dropping the punch line that goes something like this "......my friend over there actually owes me some money and we were wonding if you could help us? He's got a check for $4000 that he'll give to you, you cash it, keep $100 just for helping and then transfer me the rest..."

WTF!!! This stuff pisses me off royally! Here's this *&$%@*$'s email address just so everyone knows it: markbriggs@keromail.com

So, I'm guessing this guy isn't in the USA, but if he is by some chance i'd love to turn his ass in. Anyone got any ideas on how i can trace/find him?

Keromail is a public mail delivery joint just like yahoo or hotmail.. the only thing i can think of is to report that address to keromail.com

EDIT:

I just sent a complaint message with our conversation with this dude and the email headers to outblazes abuse contact.. we'll see what they say.
