Alex banned the sender, but that doesn’t mean others won’t do the same thing.

Steph, wouldn’t do much, these guys change email addys like most people change their underwear. Sending him email will just get you on his gang’s list as a responder, which will get you *tons* more email from these guys. They don’t even usually read the first response, just behave as if you asked questions out of interest in the faux money.
