Got one of those too. For a moment, I was actually wondering whether I 
should take it seriously, or feel offended because some recruiter 
that I've never heard of is trying to have me do work for free.

What really annoys me about these is that they're usually written to 
give the impression of a personal message from someone who would know 
what you're doing and what kind of social network you have. Sometimes 
you can't really tell without reading the entire mail. "Did I meet 
this person somewhere...? Is this someone I know from a mailing list 
or something?"

There is quite enough noise as it is without these clever (and way too 
often, successful) attempts to bypass the spam filters. :-(
