Family resettlement to Australia (419)

I've seen many 'apply for your green card' US immigration advance fee fraud/419 spams before but this is the first one I've noticed using an Australian visa as a lure:

As usual, there are several clues as to its lack of integrity, the unsolicited invitation and poor grammar for starters.  They want me to confirm receipt and then send email, but I'm puzzled about how to confirm receipt without sending email.  It has been suggested that despicable fraudsters are specifically targeting intellectually-challenged and naive victims.
