Unbelievably, the email is genuine. Everything about it - the ambiguous wording, being sent from various email addresses and the clumsy questions it asks - screams "scam" but it's genuine. It seems that some members wanted to "help" by copy and pasting the email and sending it out to their contact lists as well, hence the multiple email addresses.
