bizarre email correspondence

I use this site basically for information, but thought I would post about a CIKTel kijiji ad experience. Was thinking about switching internet companies. Came across this Ad on kijiji:

»toronto.kijiji.ca/c-services-com ··· 13598192

Got into communicating with them for 50$ 45/4 unlimited service. The emails got so pushy and made no sense to me. On top of this, correspondence came from an email account: BitWay@BitWay.biz

In the end the so called sales person requested I give him all my info via email to open an order up with him. He refused to give me his phone number. Red flags were buzzing in my head. So buyer beware on their kijiji ads. Here is the most relevant info I thought from the exchange. Just thought I would inform people (please follow from bottom up):

As a CIK customer I can tell you tell you they do not use BitWay. The phone number is available for post-sales only? That doesn't make much sense.

I believe CIK does have some resellers, perhaps this guy is one of those people, but to conduct business the way he does I would stay away from him regardless.
