Have you looked inside the header of the email? You can see the IP addresses of the routers that forwarded the email. I've found "Hotmail" addresses that originated in Nigeria. Small wonder.

Sounds like they want your name and address so they can come by and collect your bike.

Send them the street address of the Houston Astrodome. :cry:

One fraud technique is sending a cashiers check that is such a good forgery, it isn't detected by the bank tellers. Only when the computers kick it out of the system, do things go bad.
