Yeah he sent me the same message about a Meiser post I did looking for a 7wt rod. He must have some collection of gear.

Just had three pms too. Didn’t respond. But I also don’t know if I get the scam (and I’m not even close to an ‘old guy’ as mentioned above). So this phishes for emails, but to what end?

Im not sure what the scam is?

here's my guess

1. sell your email?
- seems like a lot of work to get emails?

2. once they have your email they hack your email and from there some kind of identity theft?

anyone know what kind of internet scam this is?im curious since they got my email

I'm assuming you'd send them money for something, then you'd never get it.
