That's all the email says…

"what on earth has happened to my order!"

It 'appears' to have come through the website, but we have no customer on the database with that name, and a response for further information comes back as email address not known…

There must be a scam, or a spam, or something, but I'll be blowed if I can work out what :-)

If it's Italian shaved ice sellers in 15mm, it's mine.

I think you forgot to send me a dozen H-35 tanks which I ordered about a year ago when the email was sent and lost in the aether! laugh Most likely spam, hack, phish – hope it isn't a real customer!

I get them all the time saying they sent me $350.00 USD via paypal and if I don't respond they will escalate things with Ebay.

Just trash it and don't worry about it…

Not in the slightest concerned about it – as I said, they are not on the database and it's not a manual order. What confuses me is that there is no attachment, no link, no request for money. Just that one line. Is the idea that you respond so the pirate/crook/bot knows it is a live link?
