That number rings a bell, think I got the same mob a week ago thereabouts.
Got a bit creative with them and probably wasted an hour of their time.
Sadly they got upset when I tried to "bargain" down their service cost of
$500 to something more reasonable (like three cents and a ball of string).

I figure an hour of their time wasted is time they can't go scamming some
unfortunate souls out of their bank balance. I did get an IP address from
them poking around my scammer bait VM though.
