Subject: have you seen such a spam?

hi,
today the debian-mentors list received such a spam message:
   Hello:

   I'd like to request for someone to sponsor the following unofficial
   packages I have: snes9express (1.39-beta) - a GUI frontend for SNES9x
   (as far as I know this is still an orphaned package); and visualboy
   advance (a gameboy/gameboy color/gameboy advance emulator for Linux).

   The said packages can be obtained in this apt source location:
   anything
   that u want to send,send it by this below.

   P.O box 1103 agodi
   Ibadan,
   Oyo state,
   Nigeria.

At the time i read it first i haven't noticed that this was a spam.
It is a spam bot which greps trhough mailing list archives, greps some
pieces of the text in a mailing list message and inserts his spam text.
Here's the original posting:

http://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors/2003/debian-mentors-200302/msg00287.html

have you ever seen such a spam?
what i don't understand is, how somebody can make money with such a spam
mail?
regards nico
p.s. for all german people here on the list.
there is a very good funny story about baiting the nigeria connection in
the actual c't magzine.
