A very friendly spammer

Has anyone else experienced what I'm going to call "political spam?" I have received three emails from someone named Genevieve Martin writing as if she knows me, with my actual email address in the To: field (among many others), telling me about the current situation in Kosovo. I *really* don't think I know her, but it's been disconcerting, because the tone is that of a friend sharing her insights on the situation going on over there. The last one makes me think it really is spam, as it began,

Before I start, let me apologize to some people on this list who may not want this message, but Im too lazy to change the list!!!

An interesting new take on spam, if that's what it is. Or maybe she's someone I met once, and I've just forgotten.
