Thank you for posting so much information about the scammer. Now if others google that information they will find your post and know that this is a scam.

As for reporting the scam . . . if the listing is still up on Craigslist you can report it and they will look into it and may take it down. The bad news is the scammers will just put another one up. :evil:

Hey..any advice. I never gave them any info other that my initial email in which I gave them my resume. That had my address etc. And they continued to correspond with me despite me not replying. They sent me an envelope via Fed Ex which I did not open or sign for. Is this something I can report? Is it worth my time?

You can take the stuff to the police, but they will just put it in a file cabinet since there was not a crime committed.
