I've gotten this message for multiple parts that I'm selling on here. I tried to respond to the 1st 2 emails and received the same message back, so I deleted the next few, I've now gotten 5 identical email's.

I've gotten this same email when I tried to sell some parts on RDC.

Best bet is to ask them what parts exactly they're emailing you about. Usually they send out so many of these emails they have no idea what they emailed you about in the first place. They just cut and past the same message into hundreds of emails and hope they snag one sucker.
