Most probably, this message was sent to a large number of people. Only a few
of them (who happen to have some association with J P Morgan) will open the
message and be exposed to the scam.
A famous spammer that was recently arrested sent 10 million messages a day.
This should give you an idea of how they 'reached' your address.
