From: firstname.lastname@example.orgPoor scammer, couldn't even get the faked name right at the end of the reply. And hey - I actually used a similar ploy with a scammer as this one used in the reply - I had said I had lost the original email and which pieces of artwork were they interested in - knowing they would never be able to match up what they had originally said. Now they are using the oh, dear - lost the information, please give it to me again ploy.
Subj: Re: Order Inquiry!!!!!!
Thanks for the response and am sorry for the late in reply it was due to
my tight schedule in business and no problem with the means of payment you
suggested i will kindly want to have the websites address so as for me to
select the items needed,i had lost it and couldnt get it in my file..
Okay, people - these scam emails really do look all alike after awhile. Familiarize yourself with the basic structure and get good at recognizing them when they FIRST come in. Let's have no more victims on this round, okay???
