Weird spam message

I've received a couple of weird spam messages last night and today. Has anyone else seen anything similar?
The message reads:

Re: Weird spam message

Yes, I had one. It got caught in the Gmail spam folder - I forward emails to Gmail, it spam filters them and sends me rest.
I did not read it all before deleting it but it started something like:
Hej,

Re: Weird spam message

That's the one! No attachments, no dubious links, nothing. Strange

Re: Weird spam message

I regularly receive totally blank emails. The spam filters can't find anything to match, so they pass them.
In both cases I think that they are just testing your email address to see if they get a bounceback. If they don't, they keep you in their lists for another few months and may even put your address as the return address for a few thousand spams.

Well that's something to look forward to - not!
