I, too, was in communication with this scammer. I had not sent money, however. I did talk to my friend at the FBI and he directed me to the IC3.gov website. It's an information gathering site supported by the FBI and the White Collar Crime Unit. They then shunt the information to the local authorities where the scammer is. I also sent a feedback to Yahoo. There are so many of these scammers out there, I'm not sure that they are able to catch each and every one, but we can halp by giving them all of the information that we can.
Thank you for your information on this guy. My family actually did the internet search for me. I had done one on Google, but with the erroneous information that he provided, so it turned up nothing. There is another website that the IC3 sends you to...if it's too good to be true, it is! Be careful, my Friends, and best of luck!
