    Hey... so I have my website up and running... breedergenetics.com and I got about 10 email notices from this guy... same email, and I thought it could be a glitch for reciving it 10 times, but the funny thing is the Cap Lock changes from email to email.. One email is all caps, one is all lower case, one is caps and lower, ect ect.... has anyone experience this before?

    I have cassowary egg shells for sale... they are about 50 bucks... and he's willing to pay for 2 eggs and shipping to Europe... I figure if I get the money VIA paypal or Snail mail only.. then I have nothing to worry about right? I am not giving my banking info... No Wires..

    Thoughts?

    It is legal for you to ship eggs out of the country?

    Just be careful if he says that he has access to a gazillion dollar fortune and needs your help getting it out of the country. [​IMG] I kept getting those emails when I posted birds for sale on songbirds.com
