Getting scam/spam via messages

This morning I received 3 identical messages about 15 min apart from user suswill. Email says they came from the f30 forums. The message contents are below and to me it just looks like scam/fishing message. I don't know if the user was hacked or if scammers are just signing up for the site.

msg contents-

"Hello,

you got a nice profile and i really like your profile and i feel it would be nice to get to know you more better.

Here is my email address: (susanw42@yahoo.com)
I have something very important to discuss with you privately.

hope to hear from you soon.

Susan & Desmond Williams"
