Not sure if this scam is a new one

Saw it on craigslist in San Diego and knew it was a scam . It's gone now but I engaged him just to see what his deal was. Thought it was pretty funny he thought anyone would fall for it. Using the name Elvis Morelle and claims to be working here but having to go back to France, but the kittens are in TX. He's using picture I remember seeing on a website I'm pretty sure belongs to someone here. I saved the email with the attachments if a moderator here wants to email me, I will forward them the email so they can maybe track him down or see the pictures being used.

Thanks for your reply,
I am located in Houston,TX and that is where the kittens will be
coming from. So i can have the kittens picked up by you in person or
shipped to you , it will not be more than 3 hours flight to have the
kittens shipped and delivered to you and you will only be paying the
transportation fees directly to the shipping company after i have
reserved a flight for them to be shipped to your locality. I will drop
the kittens off at the airport and reserve a flight and the shipping
service will contact you to pay them directly.You see i am actually
giving them out for adoption so all you will have to pay is the
shipping fees or adoption charges if your are picking up the kittens .
i do not feel comfortable selling them because they are like children
to me and i regard them so preciously .It is the reason i prefer not
to leave them in an animal shelter home .I am looking for a family
home where they will be loved and cared for and given much more
attention than at shelter homes. That is my greatest concern, i am
sure you understand what i mean??I will be giving them out with all
their papers(vet records) including their cloths and toys. So for the
transportation fees, it will cost $200 to have one shipped and
delivered to you and $350 if both kittens are shipped to you since
they will be using a single traveling crate.For the transportation
arrangements, i will need your full contact address,your phone numbers
and the name of the closest airport to your locality .I can have the
kittens sent to you once i get your confirmation be it today or
tomorrow and you will receive them sooner. So once i have
every requested information i will be able to make the necessary
arrangements for the shipping or pickup of the kitten of your
choice.Waiting to read from you. Do you want them both? or just one
and which of them do you prefer?
Thanks

It won't let me message you. I get an error message saying "You have insufficient privileges to view this community member's information." I'm not sure, but I think they may have your kittens.
