Luckily, google is my friend : when I searched for the first sentence of mail in google discussions, I found out it was actually spam. I must say it's the first time I wasn't able to tell if it was spam or not, until I got halfway the mail :

I've had a lot of whitewashing/viagra/s*xx offers, but this is the first time I got a job offer by spam :)

While doing this I noticed the first matched were all in news.admin.net-abuse.sightings . I think that using google one might be able to build a very basic spam filter.
