Is this the new email scam?

Had a few emails lately offering me jobs...yet I havent applied to these companies, and I cant understand why they would feel the need to introduce themselves and their company if I was the one that had applied to them?

Usually take the form of 'congratulations, we would like to take your application further, please forward a recent CV, name and telephone number to blah blah blah.....'

Just wondered if anyone else had been getting these? Had 3 in as many days

huh? I just said above lol....its weird though as it isnt going straight into the spam folder....theres the usual 'bank' emails in the spam folder but these ones come straight into the inbox :S

Have had my email addy over 10 years lol so I guess spam is unavoidable...have a new one set up though and even have had a 'job offer' email sent to that one :?....nah the job application I did fill in was to my normal account...my other one isnt associated with any companies or anything....no friends even know about it
