    Default Scam or what??

    Has anyone seen this before? Looks to me like a scam but I don't know. I don't know anyone wanting to send me money. Just doesn't look like the normal type scam messages so thought i would ask here for advice.
    -------

    This is a reminder that you have to claim the $1495.00 you have been
    recently sent.

    You were sent money with ePayment Solulutions!
    Amount: $1495.00
    Memo: 1st part payment

    To accept this payment, please go to http://www.epaymentsol.com and enter
    your claim code: 69840098.

    Please note that your claim code has been changed for security reasons!
    Your previous claim code is no longer valid.

    If you still do not wish to accept this payment, simply ignore this message
    and it will automatically be canceled and returned to the sender's account
    in 24 hours. No further reminders will ever be sent to you about this
    payment.

    ePaymentSol.com is an established and reliable Internet payment system
    since 2003. Our system is based on the newest payment processing technologies.
    Once you claim your money, you will be able to easily withdraw it to your
    bank account or receive it by cheque.

    To accept this payment, please go to http://www.epaymentsol.com and enter
    your claim code on the front page. Your claim code is 69840098.

    Once again, your old claim code is no longer valid because it was changed
    in order to protect your funds which are still to be claimed.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    Dont send that number out.. it could indicate on the other end that your email is active and would probably send out mass spam

    Scam. I've had 1/2 a dozen of those recently to various of my email addresses.

    Really it should be obvious.
