The general question in title still stands.
So I got this spam from Gmail address
address removed since it turned to be legitimate personal gmail address (just remove stars to get valid address):
Yes, I’m afraid it’s true; I am another recruiter to add to the long list of recruiters who must be contacting you almost daily.
At least some good news is that I am a direct employer and not one of those pesky Recruitment Consultants from an Agency….
I don’t want to waste your time, I’m not going to harass you, I’d just like to know one thing….
If you were considering a change in company, what would the change involve? What would be important to you? And, what would you want to hear from me in order to make you consider a new company?
Ok, I’m obviously not very good at this! That was 3 things; I hope you can forgive me for that!
If you do reply and I think I can match what your needs and motivations are, then perhaps you’ll be happy to have a conversation with me about opportunities at Foxconn DRC in Prague……..

From field of the email didn't match the mail address in signature, I came to conclusion that the email is fake, presumably recruiter scam of some sort.
It is only on Stack Exchange where I come under name Tomáš Zato, which is actually Czech wordplay. So it is possible that someone farmed some data off Stack Exchange. I do not know if anyone bothers dealing with this kind of spam. But I found it notable because I receive very little emails and this one got through filters. Given that it's expecting reply, it could be dangerous scam.
I am not asking just about this message. How can I handle this in general? It's clear that my Stack Exchange username is related to the spam. And Foxconn is a real engineering company. (I have sent them the email in case they were interested)
