I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to put any of the scammer's personal information in these warning posts.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Interesting moral dilemma. This sounds just like an approach I got, and the person up and vanished when I suggested Paypal and the numbers first. So, maybe not a real person, and can you post personal info on a person that does not exist? Especially on a message board that has an option for "add friend" and "add foe"?

Please see this post on the subject of scams. Contact Participant Services with questions about ticket validity or to provide information about a possible scam, and do not post anybody's personal details on ePlaya. Thanks
