I got one of those too awhile ago. At first I thought it might be legit, until I saw the spelling mistakes, so I wrote back if you are a scammer leave me alone. Haven't gotten any since and I have ads posted lots of places.

I think the best thing to do is just report spam and hit DELETE. Don't give them the benefit of a response and risk putting your email into their hands. Way too many people with too much time on their hands and no scruples.

Thats what I do- report it and delete. When you respond, I think they share with others that the email address is valid. ALL three of these came through equinehits.com. Just wish they'd go get a real job. Of course if the fraud people weren't out there doing this, I wouldn't have a real job!! LOL

I too got a lot of them. But now yesterday I got one simialer and I wasnt sure. So I said you need to contact me by phone. And they did, 4:00 in the morning they called. I told them I was sleeping and email me thier number, and they did. I still think it is some type of scam. THe email reads-

i call you, but you said i should drop my number that you will give me a call. well this is my number +234-70-459xxxxx (i dont want to post the real number just in case). so you can call me we discuss and also find out the shipping price and let me know, so we can discuss about payment ok.
