Emails like this are no longer a scam to extort money from you, but to ascertain if it's a live email address.

Companies send these out because everyone knows it's a scam, in the hope that people will reply saying they know it's a scam and abusing the sender. When they get these back, they can compile a list of live email addresses that they can prove are in current use, and these lists sell for decent money.

It's amazing how many people thing they are too smart for the con artists, and reply saying so, thus falling for the con!!!
