Sounds fishy to me, I would be extremely careful, especially since they have asked for your account info

Wow, how can you not go for this!

If you want to see scams post a Craigslist ad. Last one I posted had a scam to real response ration of 5 to 1.

I hate to disappoint you all but I got one too and she really sent you one of these letters by mistake since I am going to respond first. By the way I decided to go ahead and put a new Sawstop on order. I figure that my “cut” should be enough to pay for one.

I got one too. I’m sure it’ll make the rounds until Martin stops it. Greg, you got that right. Every time I list something on Craigslist, the retards come out.

I have received messages like this before on my yahoo account, but I think this one must be legitimate.
