Am I paranoid?

Am interested in your Flat AD for my daugther who will be coming to New Zealand in few weeks. Kindly get back to me with the information below:

The Cost:
Your Direct Phone Number:
Your Mobile Number:
Your Direct Email Address:
Yahoo Messenger ID:
MSN email Messenger:
Your Location:


Please ensure you reply to my email only: <probably female-name>@live.com with all the information above.
<Probably Female Name>.


I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about this reply to my flatmate wanted ad is sending up scammer-type warning bells. It could be the demand for all of my contact details, or it could be the use of the word "kindly" in this context which, while not wrong English, strikes me as slightly off. What do you think, net-savvy friends?
