I'm not trying to worry you, but if you do online banking or buy things over the internet, hackers can access some of your personal details and can gain information from the info you supply as well as that attached to your messages such as IPs, e-mail address, first and last name, etc. I was the vitim of credit card fraud over the Christmas period. The credit card that was targetted was the one I use for online purchases - understandably, I was using it a lot coming up to Christmas but the bills came from somewhere in Florida, so it wasn't a local person! I wouldn't have noticed as quickly had my credit card company not alerted me to the £890 transaction and asked if I had bought something online!

Am used to sussing out scammers on ebay, but didn't realize it'd be the same on a piano site. I'll be very careful from now on! Thank You!
I would talk to your bank or credit cards and explain the situation so that they can monitor your transactions and be wary of transactions originating far from your local address or even in a foreign country.

Ebay, for example, will tell you not to reply to the message at all and to delete the message immediately.
