I think you're right -- it's a scam. If I forget to block the comments on a blog post, you wouldn't believe all the scam spam that gets posted. Just go back and delete the links. Don't kick yourself -- the scammers are getting more clever every day with their social engineering.

PS I have the details from both contacts if anyone is curious.
Also, I tend to be über-suspicious of many of these contact attempts. I don't click on unknown attachments, etc. I feel I have lots of experience. That is why it galls me if this is a scam that I fell for it and that my correspondence in the first instance was with a scammer.
