Default Internet scam?

Has anybody been getting e-mails from a Jack Edvin? Wanting to know if you ship to Sweden and do you accept credit cards. He says he will take care of the shipping. I've been e-mailed twice in the last month. I'm assuming it is some sort of scam.

I sent a single bottle to the Netherlands and it cost $95.00 without insurance and I don't even think they got it. I met the person at a party and didn't charge for the syrup so it wasn't something that would be followed up on.

I got one today. It sounded fishy so I deleted it. Every year I get a few that scream scam to me, they say they want to buy product but don't even mention what the product is, then they ask if you take credit cards and they generally have a "shipping company" who will pick it up. I don't trust any that run like that. They never mention syrup or molded sugar, cream or any product for that matter. They just say they want to place an order.

I got the same email, replied to him that I accept only Paypal through the internet or USA cash in person, I told him to send his shipper with a handful of American cash and I would gladly supply him with my product.

Nrothwoods nectar I have an old family friend that that moved to Ft Collins from The Netherlands after he retired from banking. He has a birthday party every year and she flew in from Amsterdam where she is the head law enforcement officer (Chief of police here). Yea something about a 6' plus woman sitting around the fire pit dinking you under the lawn chair.

I se things on Craigs list all the time and man the scams come in right away. The cool part is the way they are written. "Hi I'm from other city please send me information on item I want to buy" I can pay you the money you are asking but would like to better price. Will you please send to my agent in Somalia........................YEA RIGHT Ill get right on that COD order Skinny.
