You gotta sort out the good from the bad. I don't even answer many of the replies if they look the list bit suspicious.....when you reply they immediately have your email address.
Then I sort out the good from the bad by asking a few "local" questions.....where are you located for example. I do research on the name on the email as well. I have sold some things to people I initially deemed suspicious.
On a deal that I responded to last week, I sent the email from my "disposable" address......some that reads like "trashbox......com". I didn't receive a reply, and followed up with my traditional email account. The lady later told me she was sorting through all of the scammers out there, and though my initial inquiry looked suspicious because of the user name.
