Thank you toni, thank you for posting this. As quentin says, this is a typical spam letter. Please do not answer these kind of letters, just report them, by PM or here.

Fortunately I received the same letter and this member has been blocked.

(I have deleted the e-mail addresses from the post, just in case)

thanks again and just a reminder to all who read this: Please report spam!

A typical Spam letter. The ploy comes down the road if you respond to the letter. Now that the staff is aware of it I'm sure that person's email address will be blocked.
I wouldn't be overly concerned. They are probably just phishing for live email addresses to sell to advertisers.
