I received two emails from a Jessica Levine, one from a yahoo account and one from hotmail that seem to be less than legit. This person has broken English, the emails read exactly the same except for the item they are asking about that I have for sale and they want my name, address, phone, to pay by cashiers check and insist on me writing back using my "private" email address.
I replied to the first inquiry answering their questions and did not get a reply. Instead I got a second request on a different item I have for sale that reads exactly the same, but from hotmail instead of yahoo.
Anyway, thought I'd post this in case others are getting similar inquiries because I suspect this is not a legitimate request or intent to purchase parts for sale. I've received numerous replies from ads on RacingJunk as well from other parties and have read about nightmares involving these types of scams. I could be wrong.
