During our emails back and forth I had asked him about W2 vs 1099. This morning he answered that query by asking which I preferred. He made no mention of the purchase of equipment.

So now I'm a bit stuck. If I answer that, he's going to want my SS # but I'm hesitant to give it to a potential scammer. (Maybe ID theft is their fallback for those who are unable or unwilling to make the purchase.) If he's for real then refusing to give it would be hard to explain.

Maybe I'll ignore that email and see what happens next.
