Well at least I can have some fun with them before they give up. Kind of like telemarketers. You ever tried selling something to them?

Yep, Definitively a scam! Big red flag when they use names like Jimmy Carter.

I received the exact same email from our ex-POTUS.

What's funny in my case is I'm not selling anything. My Exchange ad is a "Wanted" ad for a 404 Power Brake Unit (anyone got one?).

Looks like "Jimmy" just sends a harvested generic group email to everyone advertising on the exchange (my email was addressed to me and "undisclosed recipients"). I hate the personal info one has to give up to advertise on the Exchange!

i agree, i especially dislike the way whoever does the admin, will edit your ad content, then offer snarky comments about the way the ad was posted. i have had only good experiences with unimogshop.com

(still too new I guess ;-)
To make the point...

Clearly we skipped right over phones around here and went straight to internet access.

What he does not understand is: We are so poor, uneducated, and stupid that we only use our first name and no other personal info when we publish ads on the internet.

...because all the smart people want all that other info published and harvested....
