FRAUD ALERT

[A little while back, I had someone trying to place comments on my website saying to contact the Cyber Crime bureau @ cyber.crimebureau@ymail.com.
So - I sent them an email, knowing full well that they were not the people they were claiming to be. Here's the email I sent:
From: Brian Durham
To: cyber.crimebureau@ymail.com

Hello -
