    One person even contacted me through IM asking about trailers for sale. I had a heck of a time explaining the difference between movie trailers (which I collect) and hauling trailers (which I don't own).

    Anyone else getting these messages?

    Well, they seem to be sending to my Yahoo email account or contacting me through Yahoo IM, so it must have something to do with Yahoo. I thought I had movie trailers listed as an interest on my Yahoo Profile or something, but I don't.

    BTW, I emailed them both back saying that I don't sell trailers, and the only trailers I had were movie trailers, and did my best to explain what a movie trailer was. I got a response.

    Thanks for your mail and also i will like you to help me
    find
    a trailer cos i will like this to be in my company in west
    africa so please if you can help me.
    I sent back the web links for Movie-List, the Apple Trailers page, and also suggested they check out the websites from the companies that make the movies (Warner Brothers, Sony, Fox, etc.). Not sure that is the help they wanted, but it is the only help I can give.

    Well the bad English would suggest it's a scam or something like that.

    If they're still interested my parents have an aging boat trailer they're looking to sell. Local pickup only. Let them know. :-)
