Speaking of spam...

I'm scratching my head at this email, which I just got from a random but not obviously illicit Gmail address:
Good day,

We are looking cotton roll, and it is emergency, if you have this product in stock please let us know about it. I'm ordering this product to my new shop, and i need to know the price of this product. I would also like to know if you ship international and also want to know if you accept credit card as a method of payment. Hope to hear back from you soon

Thank You,
My initial reaction is that it must be spam or phishing or *something*, but WTF? I can't even tell which email address it was sent to -- it appears to be a totally blinded Bcc, with no To address at all -- and it's random in a way that I associate with spam, but I have no clue what they're trying to get from this. Anyone hear about this particular scam before?
