Don't toss that away, frame it. He can try to charge you all those fees, but look at it like this, how much of your personal info does he really have? Is he going to report you to the credit bureau? I would send him a bill for wasting your time. I remember the original thread, but I don't remember if he was a single person selling parts or if he was a "shop" He legally can not charge you tax of any kind without a tax ID number. Maybe the gov't would like to hear about this douche bag with his tax scam.
