A new kind of Nigerian Scam?

If you are not familiar with the Nigerian Scam yet, you may live in an email-free bubble. This is one of the most popular ways to separate naive and overly trusting people from their money. I won't bore you with the details, you can click the link above and find out about it if you don't know what I'm talking about.

Today, I got an email that may well be the new Nigerian Scam for a world in economic recession. Looking for a job? Great! We can make you a manager. Work remotely. Get 2500 USD/month. Riiiiight.

Now, I'm not sure what's going on here, or how the scam works, but I am quite certain that it is a scam. The from address does not match the name in the from line which does not match the "signature" at the bottom of the email. The "ID" at the bottom of the mail is an interesting touch to try to make this look real, but it appears to be nothing more than a string of random numbers.

Have you seen this scam? Do you know the rest of the story?
