    Default Am I the only one getting these odd eBay RE:Q Emails?

    I've gotten a few of them, and they make zero sense. I try and respond and gert a mailer daemon error. THe link is invalid as is the user name. Heres a copy of one of them, they are all the same but shipping state and item/auction varies...

    RE: Question for seller -- Item #279436522

    Hi, please add another $18 for shipping to CALIFORNIA.

    Well, if you haven't tampered with the seller's or buyer's name, then I'd say it's just plain-ol spam, seeing as how that seller or buyer isn't a registered ID. Then again, neither is the item #.

    What, you mean you've gotten others?

    I JUST got one this morning, and mine was similar to the creator of the post -- same format, just different states and a different item. Nothing was valid for that either.

    It's too small to have a virus or anything harmfull. I ran a virus check just to be sure, and nothing came up.

    What the hell IS this???

    I'll send a e-mail to EBay about it later -- I'm too tired now. Just got home from working night shift.
