Looking for ideas to further 'Toy' with an online Conman

Through the sales corner of a watch forum, I have been approached by email (what is email some may ask?) by a conman who is using the identity of a legitimate watch seller to con me out of my hard earned money. I was onto the scam from the beginning but decided to play along anyway. After a half dozen or so email exchanges, he has sent me his payment details where I can wire him the funds.

I have informed a peer of the legitimate watch seller and waiting for his reply. Otherwise I am getting bored with this villain and now open to any ideas how I can toy with him further.

The obvious response is to report him to the authorities however he is in a different country and not sure if he could be tracked down based on bank account details he has provided and whether our exchange of emails are enough evidence; and further can I be bothered to be dragged into this further.

He is waiting for me to wire him the money.

Thoughts?
