    Do you know what he is even referring to? I’d ask for more info, maybe see if you can talk on the phone if you do think you know him?

    @happyface:  Is it possible he sent it to the wrong person? Do you know what he’s talking about? If not, I might just respond and say you think he e-mailed the wrong person.

    My bet is it is spam/scam — if you don’t know who it is, don’t reply.

    Don’t respond. It is likely a phishing email, just trying to provoke a response to gather legitimate email addresses for use by spam emailers.

    It sounds like it just went to the wrong email.  There are lots of email addresses out there so it’s not so unlikely that someone has one very similar to yours and this guy got a letter wrong or something.

    prob spam, if this is really something you need toknow about they will contact you again, but its probably nothing.  I would not respond!

    Can you try to search for the email address that it came from?  Sometimes that will let you know if it’s a scam or not.  But obviously, the safest thing to do is just not to respond.

    Then it probably is spam. That’s weird spam, too. Ive been getting it from applying to jobs on Craigslist.

    I got something like this before. It was either to or from a coach saying that practice was off or something weird. It was to first name the same as mine, but my last name is VERY uncommon, so I know it couldn’t have been a typo. I didn’t respond! and I wouldn’t in your case either I don’t think.
