scam warning: "Bob in Tennessee"

I just received this PM in response to a WTB thread I had posted:
Hello,

I have a lead for you.

Please contact Bob on bobgreenlander@gmail.com regarding your request. He is located in Loretto Tennessee 38469,USA and can arrange shipping. I purchased items from him and they arrived in TOP condition. His cell phone # is (931) 841-9656. You can email him and then ring him...
It sounded suspicious. I googled the email address and phone number and apparently it's a Nigerian Western Union scam that's targeting car forums.

I reported the PM.
