I reported it and asked the moderators to report the guy to the authorities. He's provided two different e-mail accounts so at the very least, yahoo and google can do an IP block on him so he can't make new ones.

Yup. Another of those Nigerian Prince frauds. Report and don't respond. By now I'm guessing the moderator already has a few dozen reports on it though!
