Expert:  Jo C. replied 8 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 8 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 8 months ago.
Id rather not get them at all cos they wud jus upset me, il find somebody to ask, thank you for your help, iv stopped crying at least, still shaking till i get tis sorted, thank you
