I can appreciate your anger, nobody likes to be ripped off, regardless of the amount. Check scammers can get caught, but its not always that easy. This is what I put in another thread :

The reality is that often there is little that an individual can do to catch them. For example, lets assume that you are in the US. Firstly the scammers would have to be in the US and have carried out a criminal act for the police FBI etc. to be at all interested. If either of those two issues do not apply, the US authorities will not be really interested at all. We're not talking Osama here after all.

Some European countries are good at taking action, but the same criteria applies. They have to be in that country and have committed a provable offence.

You could try going to a site like http://www.419eater.com to see if somebody wants to 'bait' them or even http://www.fraudwatchers.org to use the information you have to help others.

I would not recommend that you do anything on your own, especially as they have some' real' info on you.

Hi Christopher, and welcome to SVU. I'm sorry that you have been ripped off. First off, if you haven't already done so, as well as reporting this to the police, contact your bank immediately and inform them you think you have been defrauded. If you do, the bank should be willing to come to an arrangement for paying back any money you have already spent.

Second, It sounds like you want to bait your scammer. May I suggest that you check out this thread first. http://scamvictimsunited.com/phpBB2/vie ... 1256#11256

I realise that I may have missed the obvious in my reply. As Sarah says, speak to the bank, be open and let them know what has happened.
