    Why wasting your time when you can just report them to the government.

    Well, there is nothing wrong with reporting them just the same, I think you should.
    But, the scammer is not scamming others while busy with you and if a lot of people start doing this, and the numbers are growing, it gets more and more frustrating to the scammer.

    Having a site shut down takes time and is easily restored, wasting time on customers gets frustrating, makes the method used less desirable.

    You have a point in saying you are wasting time too, but at least you are having fun in that time. [​IMG]

    It is not for everyone though, I agree with you there. Two hours is longer than I would spend on it.
