This gentleman (Enzo) contacted me. As I'm aware of the scam issue I asked that he send me his address and a telephone number or contact me by phone. No further contact!

I have also been contacted by 'Annabell'. I replied in the same manner as I did to 'Enzo'.

I was also contacted by "Annabell" this morning. I was unaware of this scam (and cannot immediately see how it works) but have cancelled the arrangement made by email,
