What does this mean now?
It's very strange! How do they come to the idea that I'm the Webmaster of A+F?

Hmmm, I've never seen one quite like that before.  But I would NOT respond.  It might be what they call "phishing" and if you respond, then they can access a lot of info about you...passwords, history of sites you visit....all kinds of stuff.  Better to ignore it than be sorry.

yeah, what she said.

it's best left untouched. better yet, just delete it all. none of it makes sense anyway, and this could very well be a trap to get to your personal information.

I just googled "crackerjackcharters" and got their website.  They DO exist and are a legitimate company.

http://www.crackerjackcharters.com/index.html

Can't imagine why/how they contacted you though. 

As Deenan said, best to just delete it.

That's so odd.  I wonder why they thought you were the webmaster of A&F.  And why they'd contact an Elijah Wood website when they own one about fishing.  Strange.

I have no idea!
