Background checks. Google searches. It's easy to find information on people w/ the internet. It really is

Let him. They're just going to laugh at him. It's not the job of a police officer to handle matters like this.

And if he's claiming that he got NO money at all, well, you have a western union way to prove that as a lie, and even if you didn't, if he didn't get any money, then why did he ship it to you?

The guy is trying to bluff, and using scare tactics. don't fall for it. Google search around for some actual legal advice from legal sources, you simply CAN NOT be arrested.

You *CAN* be sued, but he will not, and cannot win (Remember, anyone can be sued for anything, just because you CAN be sued, does not mean you've done anything wrong) Being sued is not a scary thing, unless you've done something wrong, the mere act is nothing more than taking off your glove and smacking someone with it "I challenge you to a duel!"

Proof is in the pudding. A nebraska senator sued God, in a real court case, and won by default, because God didn't show up to represent himself (herself?...Godself?)

No need to feel like an idiot, just be thankful you didn't fall for it.

And seriously - go report his ass. FTC, Attorney General, Sheriff, and Armslist. Will he get in "Trouble"? I doubt it, but when they're investigating his actions, it'll be enough to scare the **** out of him...and pretty sure he'll get black listed on armslist (or banned)

If you don't, he'll just do it to someone else. You are in a position to put his ass in its place right now.

Excellent idea

I'm a private investigator. Private message me and I'll call the low life and tell him to cut the crap!
