I've been asked to participate in an email fraud and want to report them?

A girl responded to an ad about renting a room in my house and I caught on quick that it was a scam. When I told "her" to leave me alone because I knew it was a scam, she emailed me back admitting to the fraud and asked if I'd like to be a part of it! Here's part of what she said: I'm into money order and cashiers check scam.This is a job i have been doing for more than 5 years and it yield about 30 to 40 thousand USD weekly.I wouldn't mind you working with me and all you need to do just help me distribute check to my client and pick up fund via westen union this is risk free

if you follow the instruction i gave you and you will earn upto $5000 weekly without risk.

I'd like to report this incident because I know not everyone is as cautious as I am and will get taken for a ride. Does anyone know how I can do this?


I wanted to see what this person would say in return and here's my response! I can't believe this!

To get started,

1 ). You will have to buy VersaCheck(R) Payroll or Check Soft 2010

Premier at Staples or Office Max store around you.

2) do you have Printer and Personal Computer?.

3). You will have to call UPS on phone and order for 200 pcs of envelopes

and 200 waybills which you will use in mailing out the payment.

you can add me on williamsterry001@yahoo.com, so we can talk better on I.M...

Thank you for the suggestions and I will certainly file a complaint and I think letting yahoo know about this account would be a good idea!

Update 2:

I meant his.her response they sent me. I did not write that part above. It was from the person.

    Definitely report this to the FBI. Remember to save that e-mail so you can forward a copy to them.
