Maybe it is relavent to this list. I got one a few hours ago. Since I had 
no clue who the sender was, I ran a virus scan on the mystery file called 
comercial_nuba.doc.bat and it came up clean. But the text of the message 
was the same or similar to the one you have - bad English included.

To quote:
>Hi! How are you?
>I send you this file in order to have your advice
>See you later. Thanks

Well -  never execute a file from an unknown source. So its still just 
sitting in my attachments folder.  Or was, until now. Now its deleted.
