The email appears to come “from” the spam victim (here’s why). The domain was registered just yesterday to an “Alexey Kernel” at a fake address in the Ukraine.

Some other “reply to” addresses are:
[email protected]

Subjects include “Current Vacancy”, “Job Offer – Flexible Hours”, “Get a New Job Today”, “Current Open Position”, “Administrative Assistant Vacancy” and “Employment Opportunity”. Oddly, the subject is in English even though the body of the message is in Spanish.

The jobs offered will be money laundering and other illegal activities. If you have any samples that are different, please consider sharing them in the Comments. Thanks!
