      reasonably sure it wouldn't be legal to sell to anyone uninstalled unless they have their epa license.
      No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

        Assuming for a second that the request is legit. Is this orphanage located here in the US and if not where? Is it legal to export such equipment AND would the equipment you could purchase here even operate on their electrical system IF it is outside the US.

          The guy who did my website, is also tied to these messages, so he can monitor for spam and things of that nature. I get an e-mail from his this morning that he thinks this was spam/scam.

          I have a type II license, but I would never sell any equipment that I wasn't installing.

          Speaking of license, I missed Universal by 2 questions, and I'm thinking about going back for it. However, I never in my life ever worked on those types of systems, so maybe that's why I didn't pass that section.

            I'm not entirely sure how I passed the universal. at that point my experience was entirely textbook from a correspondence course I took.

              I agree, it's probably a scam. Sometimes they're not so obvious, but I've gotten almost every kind of scam email out there, so I've gotten used to these things.

                the a/c has nothing to do with it. it's the banking info they're looking for.

                had the same type email a year ago, but with water heaters.

                see it all the time on craigs list.

                  We had the water heater thing going for a while. It was always a school or orphanage. Somehow they wanted the stuff dropped off at a freight forwarder and "send them the bill". I don't know what they might have been after except free water heaters! They always ignored requests to "send credit card number and we will send water heater". After a while we just started ignoring them.


                  Is your request from a SCAM? I would put my next check on it!!!!!
