The last three days I've been getting email spam to my Gmail account with some variation of the following body content:
Hey [my name], are you from [my city]?
And then there will be some random key strokes/gibberish below it, maybe 10 to 20 characters with spacing. Are others receiving similar messages or familiar with the method/goal of this kind of spam?
One weird note is that one of these emails was somehow nested as part of a completely different past conversation from a different sender (it was just a newsletter for an app company). I don't know if there is any relation or if the header info for the email confused Gmail into grouping the messages somehow.
