.......now the US needs to catch the thousands of other people using the www for crime purposes. For this I wish the US authorities the best of luck, in catching, prooving and convicting them.
Come on people is time to train people into what looks like and what isn't a proper site. Did none of the people ripped off by this scammer, ring AOL to check. If the first person who read the email had rung up and checked, AOL could have sorted the issue out sooner.
The other way is not have credit cards, and stay off the internet.
