Call them. If you can't find them in the yellow pages, likely they're phishing. Also, look at the information they want from you. IF they ask for ANY personal info beyond a phone number or address, forget it. They don't need bank info, PINs, soc sec #'s, or anything like that over email! Contact the BBB and see if they've had any reports, too.

He does not know the model number, and he doesn't know what kind it is, except that it is a Singer.

SO -- I'm very excited and optimistic that I will soon have a new sewing machine! Weirdly, I had not sewed in over thirty years and just bought a Kenmore 19606 from Craigslist two weeks ago! What are the odds?
I think that's kinda cool! Good luck!
