It's Either Another Internet Scam Or An Awesome Order

Hiya! I received an email message today for an order for next Saturday of 15 dozen hi-hat cupcakes. I am suspicious because the message requests the total order amount including the cost of shipping (no shipping address provided, though) or my full business address so that her "private carrier" can pick the cupcakes up if I cannot ship them.

Sounds fishy to me, so I responded that she needed to call me on Monday and that I do not accept e-mail orders for requests that large. We shall see...

Have any other CCers received such an unusual e-mail request? Is this another internet scam or prank???

Google is a wonderful tool; "email and cupcakes scam" resulted in this thread on CC:
