    It`s just spam. If you`ve ever posted your address online it could have been stolen that way, or someone you did business with in the past sold it/got hacked/etc.

    Just report it through Spamcop if that`s what you do with junk mail, and delete it. Whatever you do don`t reply to it and don`t click anything it may contain. Then they know you recieved and read it and will send you, and everyone else, more and more.....

    I agree with Chris. Although I don't get much spam, I just don't read it. It never turns out to be anything I want. And just like what's offered in snail-mail spam, I believe the product would be shoddy. I don't think I would want to buy anyway -- that would seem like supporting the whole idea of unsolicited solicitation.
