scam for some company

This person contacted me via yahoo messenger and offered me a part time job for Bishopston Trading Company.  I quickly realized it to be a scam, contacted the company who’s being wrongly named in the scam and asked them if I can help.  They said the British police are already investigating, and the best thing they would ask me to do is waste as much time of theirs as possible.  Hence the following conversation:

The email I recieved back from the real company when I informed them about the scam is below:

Thanks for your email and recognizing that this is a scam – you wouldn’t believe the hundreds of people who have contacted us thinking this is a real job.  Unfortunately there is not a lot we can do about it – we contact the servers everytime we get a new email address for the spammers – and this is in the hands of the police here in the UK.  Feel free to be as rude as you like to the spammers – and waste as much of their time as possible!

So I’m going to have a little fun and see how far it goes.

I’ve made a fake ID from a template I found here http://www.free-fake-id-template.com/ to send to them.
