    It does sound like a scam.

    The use of free email address such as gmail and hotmail are red flags, companies have their own servers and don't use free accounts.

    The acceptance of Western Union, moneygram and bank transfer, all those payment options are only used by scammers. Legit companies never use any of those 3 options and instead accept credit cards and money orders.

    The poor grammar and crappy spelling also scream 'scammer'.

    Lastly, the 'buy some, get some free' is another favorite line of scammers.

    Google everything, names used in emails, email addresses, sentences in the email and company names used. You might just find them already posted on this or another scam-warning-fraud-watching site. If not, start a post and ask. Never be in a hurry to make a purchase on the internet, the site will be there tomorrow and if it isn't, you didn't want to buy from them anyway.

    Western Union, moneygram and bank transfers are just like sending cash, no refunds ever. Using a credit card not debit card is the most secure, at least with a credit card, you have a chance at getting your money back.

    There are thousands of fake sites and free email accounts pretending to sell electronics and clothing. Take your time and ask lots of questions.
