Looks like it to me
What would they have done with my email is what I’m wondering
They may not have wanted your email. Sometimes they try to pull a wire transfer. Or they will send you an email transfer and report it as fraud and have it returned. I'm sure they have all sorts of new scam methods these days too...
Yupppppp. For transactions online, ONLY do cash and meet in public places. Not at your home, not at their 'home' or a hotel no matter the story your spun. You need to protect yourself and people are crazy af out there.
