    My domain is about jobs and this is what im planning to reply..

    Me and my partner lawrence own the website but we've already terminate our partnership due to economic crisis, we didn't get any advertiser to promote jobs but we do have collected a small double opt in maling list. How did we get the mailing list? Last year we did a campaign over Craiglist and post ads on there so everyone who replies to our post we will redirect them to our site.

    what do you think guys.. i dont want to lose my money its over $1k

    thanks!

    Oh dear lord. You WANT him to be banned.

    That's like saying:

    "Yeah I do this little blackhat thing it's genius really, I get people to fraudulently submit their credit card info!

    It's pretty awesome right? NOW PAY ME"

    Harvesting people's emails are not considered "mailing lists".
    Just follow my advice, if you're so stubborn then tell them what everyone else is telling you which is pretty much confess and get your account deleted.
