    ARB just emailed me and said this.

    "Hi Shayne
    *
    We have been trying to get a hold of you to see if you have the bumper so we can pick it up from you. Please let me know asap if you do and an address where it is located so that we can send a truck to bring it back."

    I don't understand why they are trying too pick up my bumper. I like where it is located.

    Obviously I have no problems with it, and I am completly confused as too why they are trying too pick it up. I never even ordered it from them.

    I don't think so. The email came from a arbusa.com email address. Which is a domain that arb owns.

    I did email back so we'll see what they say.

    I ordered it from autoanything. My name and email address is on the world wide web. But all info about my truck is only on tacoma world under the username nunavut. So I doubt anyone would put that togeether.

    yeah it's either quite an elaborate scam or they made a mistake and confused you with someone who probably asked it be returned because they didn't like it

    If it is a real email there would be contact info phone numbers or something along those lines.
    Some venders get items shipped directly from the manufacturer so they may have your name and info. But if that's true they would have your address already.

    They won't have my address because I got it shipped too a USA address so I didn't have too pay shipping. I then drove their and picked it up from Canada.

    The email address has all the contact info, I just didn't paste that because I didn't think it was relevent. I checked all the phone numbers and fax numbers and they are the same as on the ARB website. So I think this is a legit email, I'm just wondering why they think I want them too pick up my bumper.
