I got a very similar ( almost identical) message in response to an Ebay listing that was totally unrelated to MC parts. I believe this person is getting names/addresses off Ebay. Person was eager to buy my item ($3000), but although I clearly listed in the ad no credit cards, he inquired about international shipping using his credit card to "save time". His letter was so obviously bogus---especially after having read the postings here. I told him I would be happy to ship if pre-paid by money order/bank check and of course never heard from again---I will say one thing though...since that time I've been getting lots of attempts to send me viruses. This is either one person or some organized "gang" over there.
