    Doesn't matter....

    DO NOT respond to that email.

    I would call ARB directly. If anything.....report the email to ARB. Someone is scamming them. Happens ALL the time.
    Scammers get better and better at making emails look legit.

    Even if the email came from a scammer, do you think they'd send a truck to Nunavut to pick it up? :)

    I'd bet if you look deeper into the email, it only APPEARS to have come from an arbusa domain...scammers have been able to mask/fake that stuff for awhile

    i'd go to both ARB and autoanything and alert them that their sites may have been hacked and customer information has been stolen

    This seems like a lot of work for a $800 bumper that will only sell for about $600. Minus the cost of picking it up. If it is a scam, its not going to be very profitable for the scammers.

    Probably not.

    I have a confession... I'm in manitoba...

    They can change the name covering the email. But not the address it was actually sent from.

    I'm still waiting for them too reply back.

    It's not about the bumper at all.

    It's about hooking you in, getting your personal information and raping you later.

    If you think it's legit - Good Luck.
