what an idiot
So im the other day im checking my yahoo email. Its a confimation letter for an order with a list of gear, email's, adress..everything. Some idiot sent it to me by accident. What a coincidence huh? Not like I have anything on order anyways. And i would never order from a website in the first place. I was about to send him an email saying that i changed my adress and had it sent to me. lol

It's a ploy to get you to place a similar order, thus showing you the "ease" of which it's supposedly done.
Only problem is that they don't realize that we are supposed to think we were sent this on accident, which does nothing to comfort me, seeing as they could very well send my information to someone else, and there goes your anonymity and privacy.
Scammers don't think that far.

This is a "marketing ploy" that has been around for a while. I get them for stock tips, real estate "deals", secret lists of government repos, etc. They always make it look like it was sent to me by "accident".

I've heard about this scam, but I've yet to receive it.
Makes me sad.
