    Yeah...pretty good sign that it's a scam if he says he was going to toss his WTB - SAXOPHONE OTHER BAND INSTRUMENTS - CLARINET TRUMPET TROMBONE within the trash instead of making a lamp out of it like most normal people would.

    They're simply seeking valid email addresses, which they'll get if you write them back.
