Creepy e-mail

OK, so after a rather interesting weekend that may or may not have involved going to a small town cheese festival, I returned to work to something kind of creepy.

I often get spam work mail, that is just part of the world of journalism. My company e-mail is posted in more places that I can imagine I'm sure. Pretty sad, but it's probably true. Anyways, I typically get e-mails that say something about "You just won a million dollars," "Free Mercedes coming from Iran," "Please come to my art show," "Would you like to advertise with us for free," and the list goes on and on.

But, for the first time in 3 years I received an e-mail like none other. Here is what it said:

how are you doing?
i hope you are fine,my name is Mary,please don,t be suprise to receive my message, when sarching througth ( insert company web site) i came accros your contact,because i believe one can find a very good caring,understanding and God fearing person anywhere in the world,i hope to hear from you so that i wil tell you more about my self with love and trust, and i will give you my pics thanks Mary

How creepy is that?

I'm hoping it is just spam, but who knows right?
