Strangest Spam ever?

Nothing to do with Second Life, but I just received the weirdest spam ever (perhaps). This came to an email address that I once used to sign up for something, but it was so long ago that I’ve forgotten what, and that I only ever get spam sent to. Looking at the headers on the email, it does seem to to genuinely come from Google, or at least be a very convincing copy. Why are spammers sending out resumes for me? Thanks spammers, but I’m not sure I’d want to work for Google anyway. Bizarre!

“Dear Applicant,
 We just received your resume and would like to thank you for your interest
in working at Google.  This email confirms that your application has been
submitted.

Our staffing team will carefully assess your qualifications for the role(s)
you selected and others that may be a fit.  Should there be a suitable
match, we will be sure to get in touch with you.

If you’d like to get immediately involved and help form Google’s new
products and features, we encourage you to visit Google Labs.  This site
showcases a few of our favorite ideas that are not quite ready for prime
time!  We invite you to play with the prototypes and send your suggestions
directly to the Googlers who developed them.

Have fun and thanks again for applying to Google!

Google Staffing”
