I just had the same thing happen
Other threads too many of them are about this spammer.
Check other threads - this is happening a bunch :)
It's a spam bot. Then Etsy catches up to them and shuts them down.

sorry I hardly ever come to the forums but this seemed very strange, thanks for clarifying for me
You do nothing unless you want to report them to trust@etsy.com and wait for them to be shut down. Or you can swear at them and then report.
that explains a lot then!! thanks :)
