This 'buyer' also sent me the exact same email, misspelled words and all.

I received a similar inquiry from this buyer regarding a canopy I'm selling. It seemed suspicious that I couldn't find any info about him on Facebook or here, other than the posts about him being a possible scammer. Thanks for sharing the info.

Here's his follow-up phish attempt. Note the attempt to be cool and failure to cut and paste the rig type. I had also already sent my name and cell phone number. Somebody buying a rig would be more careful.
