Spam. To be specific, con artist spam. The goal of such messages is to get you to pay some up front "fees" or to get your bank account number so they can try to siphon off money from it. I get dozens of messages like this every week, although they are usually more specific, with the sender claiming to be some particular relation of some prominent person in some African nation, most comonly Nigeria. Annually, those taken in by this scam lose, in the aggregate, about $100,000,000.
 
You can be pretty sure that either this moor rose [rosermoor@yahoo.com] is a criminal or someone is impersonating them.
