  Information
Name:

Email Address:

said he found my ad for tutoring, and sent me a cheque with no questions asked, saying he wanted me to teach his son, Justin, when he came to town. Asked for my address to send the cheque to, and i (stupidly) obliged.

He sent me a cheque, which was too big, and is asking for the difference. I haven\'t cashed it, and would like to scambait, if anyone could provide guidance. He wants the difference by western or moneygram, as is typical of these types.

the address he wants this stent to is a PO box area, and the country is wrong, and in the last email (attached below) his last name changes to bowman
