How to bust a potential scammer?

Someone is trying to scam me!

If someone tells you that they will send you a $2000 MO and you're to keep the agreed amount and then use Western Union to send rest to them and there Shipping agent will pick up the package..... IT'S A SCAM!!!! This is called the Nigerian Scam.... The MO is fake and won't show until 3-7 days later.... Which leaves you screwed because you would have to pay back the bank....

Someone try to pull one of these on me, luckily I remembered to stay away from Western Union money orders. I posted this ad on www.craigslist.org and got an email regarding my sale. Well now I want to see if its possible to bust this guy for attempting to screw the public people over! If I wanted to notify the cops, get this guys address and everything, how would I go about doing this?

His email is thompsonmath_200@coolgoose.com
