Some days ago I’ve receive this email, that seems to be a spam:

The verified version of VMWARE Users list is releasing on October 19th, 2011.
Would you like to have a copy of the same at a low investment?
You would get information such as Contact Name, Company Name, Title, Phone & Fax, Mailing Address and Business Email Address.
We are providing it to only 5 customers on a first come first serve basis. So hurry and grab a copy of the same.

The sender domain does not have a web page, there is no mention on how the data are collected and which is the relation with VMware (note also the wrong capitals in the email).

IMHO I suggest to manage it as a spam message.
