    I get mails like that for almost a year now, there are all scams but allways come wit emails from a free provider....

    sometime ago i found a website of a guy who was giving that guy's a pretty hard time in showing interest in this bull... just taking the time of the other guys for fun... he posted all the mails back and fourth on his page... pretty cool but don't have the bookmark anymore...

    but here another pretty interesting link if you want a look into stuff like that.
