In my estimation this is a social engineering attempt. Scanning for sympathetic targets.

I have had similar communications with this person before and I am not sure what his deal is. ?Last time he asked to go to some site about some Linux person and asked for a password. ?A password for what I do not know.
So long story short, this person does not appear genuine and might ?be a scammer.
