Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

none at all.

You have just been scammed. You will probably not recover your money but you have not committed any criminal offences.

Just stop responding to him and don't send money to people like this.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

I am not a technical expert. I do think you can cause his emails to bounce back in some way.

Or you could just ignore him.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
