A tech man's joy - wasting scammers time

I initially got started doing this kind of work teaching Senior Citizens computer skills way back in 1998.  One of the more infuriating things I had to deal with is people scamming them.  There are countless scams out there.  I am in the middle of a fun one.  I put a Macbook Pro up on Letgo.  In short, a scammer wants me to mail it to his "son" (in the military, a typical scam, plays on your love of the troops).  He is willing to pay me $100 on top of my price for shipping and for helping him get his military son a computer.    He is sending the money to western union for me to pick up.  I am screen shotting the the whole conversation so that the world can see how these scams work.  Will update shortly.......
