I reported a convo to Etsy only last week that was sent to my shop which was worded in quite a dubious way.
They wanted to make an offer for the most expensive item listed in my shop.
It came form a brand new etsy account created that same day and they wanted to arrange someone to pick up my item..I am in France and the chances of them being in France too are slim.
I am always suspicious of contact that veers from the norm, so there was never any risk of falling for this one.

The thing that puzzles me is this, this person was keen that I email back my reply, but is there any more information that I'm inadvertantly giving away had I done so?

Here is the actual convo, sent on Christmas day: Check out the account name

  17. The endless diversity of materials associated with making handcrafted jewelry implies that
    this unique jewelry is a class of the own.
    Don't wait before the damages develop before you keep these things repaired as this may cause a larger amount of cash than small repairs. Genuine pearl necklaces' are more inclined to be
    knotted with gold, silver, or platinum clasps.
