Don't worry about it, I strongly suspect he's a fake. He PM'd me about a part for which I put up a wanted ad; said he knew someone who had one, the email address looked dodgy, I did a search on it, and the same address came up as a scammer in a discussion in an antique Ford forum.

Me too. PM was worded oddly and again a dodgy email address. I’ll report it to Jeff.

Update: the email address he is putting in his PMs is associated with a known scammer. If you Google it you get pages of results from all sorts of other forums with the same complaint.
