I bid on an item which was with drawn as the reserve wasnt met.

I recieved the email below.

Hello loccd,
If you want we can have a deal for your price at ( your last bid )including shipping and insurance of the package.
I must tell you that I will use Second Chance Offer in order to have this deal closed. The Item number: 4640265569 is in their custody and they will take care of the delivery and payment. So you will have the chance to inspect the item before I receive the payment for it.eBay will also be informed about our deal...they will have you on file as the buyer of my item.
Now, if you want to proceed with the transaction then I will need your full shipping info and I will forward it to SquareTrade and they will start the transaction. They will immediately open a SquareTrade case and notify you with all the details you need to know regarding our deal.  You will have 14 days Return Policy so you can inspect the item. . So please let me know if you agree and if you do then please send me your full name and address so I could contact them to proceed with the transaction. I am waiting for your email.Please contact me at:   ddanutzzseller at yahoo dot com
Regards.
 
I contact the boat owner who knows nothing about this person, I forwarded my concerns to ebay, they are totally ignored, only getting an automatic responce.
 
DO NOT EXPECT EBAY TO DO ANYTHING TO STOP ATTEMPED FRAUD..
