and what do you mean "can't seem to get it working" ?

with scponly you also have a chroot-option, if your user is the only
scponly user, then the top-dir in the chroot-scponly setup could be his
home-dir (disclaimer, i've successfully used scponly, but only read
documentation about chroot-scponly, not used that yet)
