First contact was from RMarcheski@aol.com asking if my motorcycle was still for sale on craigslist. Follow up contact is from email@example.com.
Found to be typical of the gmail address, pay $100 extra to hold the deal and promise of a shipper, etc.
I would not have responded at all if I had known the reply to address was that different.
