I had the same person respond to my WTB classified via e-mail few days ago. It was so obvious it wasn't from a genuine APUGer... while he claims to live in England with an English sounding name, his grammar was very poor and choice of words were decidedly that of a non-native speaker. Called me "dear", and kept referring to the item as "item" such as "above referenced item." Also, a typical APUGer will know what most serious photographers look for in certain item and describe it carefully and to the point. It was very generic.
Anyway, I am not responding to this e-mail. I only do business with established APUGers.
