Well, my first reaction is to delete the message and forget about it.  There is an option of reporting the message to the service provider (eg. Google), through a "report scam" or "report phishing" link. I'd just use a keyword search to find the right page.


If you get these on italki, please report the user. You'll be doing a favour to the other members here. :)


Some people have had fun with "scambaiting", which means replying to the scam message with your own fake story and identity, and tricking them instead. It needs a lot of time and care, but the results are sometimes very funny. You can find some blogs online about how people have done this, though they are extremely long to read.
