Don't Respond To Brigid

I've been getting a new kind of spam for a couple of days, at least I'm pretty sure it's spam. "Brigid" has been emailing me, just being very chatty and a little jealous about my "new boyfriend". Very authentic-looking and sounding, not like those emails with the subject line "Hi, Remember ME?" that instantly load porny images. Not that I open those, mind you. Anyway Brigid is concerned that I am not responding to her. Here's what she just wrote:
Hey, just because you got a boyfriend doesn't mean you can go and ignore me. you don't even return my emails?! what an insult! and at rollerworld, you completely blew me of! now i'm really mad! not fakin' like before.

It sounds so teenager angsty that I am tempted to respond, knowing full well that it will put me on a "she'll fall for anything" high priority spam list. It's very clever.
Maybe this is something like David Still? David's put his (fake) identity online for people to borrow so they can send emails from him. He even has canned ones. You can read the responses to "David's" emails on the reply page.
Is anyone else hearing from poor Brigid?

October 8, 3 pm, Brigid says,
Email me pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
