There was a thread last year, I think, discussing this very issue.

I believe there were some suggestions.

Might be worth looking that up. It's definitely a scam, though- this type of communication exactly.

Hi all, long time no email from me.

Question...this looks like scam to me; let me know what you think. Thanks much, lav

Am interested in some of your products, do you ship to Switzerland and accept US issued credit card as payment?, you will contact my shipper who handles all of my shipment, they pick up the items at your location and deliver directly to my store doorstep without hassle.

Let me know if i can e-mail you what am interested in ordering.

Thank you.
