    So I was posting "Great Income Opportunity" and had a autoresponder set up in gmail advertising Partner with Paul. They said they contacted the local police for scamming or whatever. I was just wondering, what can actually be done.

    I agree with twoj. As long as you're not doing anything highly fraudulent, they're probably just bluffing or their efforts will be wasted. There's nothing wrong with promoting CPA offers; the police have bigger fish to fry.

    ain't nothing gonna happen kid...even the richest cityies do not have the budget to pursue internet spam/scam. As long as you are not scamming then u should be good dude.

    Again as long as all you are doing is reaching out to cl posters with some legit stuff then you are fine. I am almost certain the police will not come get you for replying to a cl poster that asked for help.

    That would certainly be news worthy.

    Call the police station and ask them if they've received any "Great Income Opportunity" scam reports...I bet they say yes. If no, give them your sales pitch.

    Yup, your fine. You will get use to these emails. Most come from competitors and the rest come from Craigslist Vigilantes. The truth is what others have already stated, no local authority is going to waist their time and effort on this.

    Maybe they didn't like your offer... So just send them a different one. Guilt them into your opportunity..

    Like this.

    "I am sorry you feel scammed. I am struggling at home while my husband has to deliver papers just to make ends meet. He was layed off. Our business is slowly growing so this opportunity will help us. bla bla bla.. Makem' feel sorry."

    I think you can put whatever you want. The police in my town wouldn't even respond to my neighbor's home being burglarized. I seriously doubt any police department would give a s*** about anything on the internet.
