There is another one going around asking sellers to open a word document attached to the email. This could potentially be a malware, so be careful of anything you download from these spams. see the email below

"Dear Sir. I would like to buy your goods. I have a few questions about the package. Could you please pack goods properly? I need a certain standard packaging. Can you provide it? Please see the attached file for details. Sincerely Yours"

I received the same type of email. I contacted Amazon about it as I do not believe they allow solicitation of this kind on Amazon.com. I would recommend you also contact Amazon to let them know about it so they can continue to investigate.

I have been contacted by probably the same company more than once.

I did not respond - clicked No response and reported it as suspicious.

I did check out the referenced website and found it to be something that is really not worth my time.

There are many online marketplaces with the most popular seeing less than 5% of what is sold on Amazon and those were not worth my time. To start selling on even tinier venues is definately not worth my time.
