They don't want you, you are clever enough to see the scam. They want someone who doesn't realize it's a scam. No answer, no problem, they just keep emailing. Eventually they find someone who falls for it.

Or you could act like you are falling for it and create a new hobby. Wasting their time and money is an art. Redwood knows: 419eater.com
