Private Lesson inquiry from middle school boy: FAKE?

I've been placing job ads on Koreabridge for a couple of years now. I received almost the same emails two years apart and wondered if anyone else had received similar emails regarding private lessons (seems like a set-up!)

I received this email September 11, 2008

Hello, my name is jeon seo hyun
 
I'm high school student grade 2, and i need an English native teacher.
 
So, if you want and have time, please send me e-mail.
 
 
Student - Me(Jeon seo hyun) and My brother(Jeon Ji hun)
 
Time - We can study at saturday 2 p.m to 4 p.m
(Me one hour and my brother one hour)
 
Place - My home(the apartment near Dong-eu univercity)
 
Fee - conference
 
And we want to start lesson as fast as you can.
 
Please send me e-mail after you read my mail. Thank you.

Then Today I received the following email:

Hello, my name is Jeon seo hyun
 
I'm now graduate high school, and my brother is middle school 3th grade. We need an English native teacher.
 
So, if you want and have time, please send me e-mail.
 
Student - Me(Jeon seo hyun) and My brother(Jeon Jee hoon)
Time - We can start study at Sunday 1:00 or 2:00
(Me one hour and my brother one hour)
Place - My home(the apartment near Dong-eu univercity)
Fee - conference
 
And we want to start lesson as fast as you can and please mail me as soon as you see it.

Something about these emails seems fishy to me. Has anyone else received something like this in their email box lately?
