This isn't possible. I mean you can ban an IP address but that only works for a day at best even if the scammer was an idiot.

99% of people don't have fixed IP addresses from their ISP at home. Not as common at the workplace now either. And with the prevalence of cheap VPN service that lets you appear from thousands of IP's all over the world its a fruitless endeavor.

So while you can technically ban an IP in a literal sense, it doesn't have any meaningful or lasting effect. It's basically a never ending game of whack-a-mole.
