I am looking for creative ideas as to how to trick the trickster... (read on)

So I have someone in Kentucky using my photo's and ad copy for our condo for rent and posing as the owner, posting on Craig's List, albeit at a vastly reduced rate.

I was alerted to this by a person who initially saw one of my old ads somewhere else, decided it was out of her range, and went to CL, then seeing exactly the same pictures and description, for considerably less.

She enters into an email dialogue with these guys (who really need to go brush up on their grammar and spelling) and almost send them a $300 deposit.

As she tried to to a title search, to no avail, she decides to find the original ad (from another site) where my contact details are mentioned, and calls me.
She was kind enough to forward me all correspondence, which include names, addresses and specific bank details of the fraudsters.

Some creative hacking on my part has me with also with a phone number and physical address of these guys in Louisville, KY. and thanks to Google, Google Maps and Streetview, I can have a pretty intelligent conversation about or this individual.

I have alerted CL security, on-line, called the US bank in question (who initially did not know what to do with my call) , called VPD and referred the lady to our agents for her housing needs as the place is not available

VPD telss me they know all about CL and this happens with housing, cars, boats, etc.
I was advised to log this with the Canadian Anti Fraud people, but found myself on hold for ever and gave up; besides, other than logging the call, what is there to do? 
No money changed hands, the CL posting has disappeared, etc.

These people, however, piss me off; what can be done?

Ideas?

Looks stunning but can't believe his description of how he captured it. If it was one long exposure he would need to do more than whip out his camera and click. Either the stars, or if he actually had a motor to track them, the earth would be blurred. Must be a composite of pictures with some HDR manipulation thrown in.

Now here's something I stumbled upon, Google + ing around.. I will support this.
 
Take a look.

You might be able to help someone who is looking to make a better life for themselves and their family.

I went for the free $25 donation to help somebody with a loan.

If that is paid back, I will hopefully look to help more.

Thanks for letting me know about this +Maciej Markiewicz
