    If your ad does not have your personal contact info on it and a forum member has to send you a PM then you are fine.

    If you received a E-MAIL and your email was not list on your ad then that is very irregular. Is your email listed on any other site or did you pass your email on to someone via PM here?

    There is a reason why we do not want members to list personal info such as email in their open forum ads and encourage contact via PM first.

    Are you translating Email and PM here to be the same thing? I checked your ad and did not see where you had any email address ect. attached to your ad. Many members will reply via PM rather than post on your ad.

    I understand thats why I thought it was odd, I haven't put my personal stuff in any ad I'm currently asking around maybe one of my friends gave my email to a local guy I am looking locally too . I just wanted to check to see if it could have possibly happened before here , when I figure it out I'll update post ,Thanks for the quick response
