Weird Spam - From Juror No.4 to Juror No.3

I was skimming through my hotmail junk and found one very strange email:
From : Juror No. 4 [email protected]
Subject : Help, I'm Looking for Juror #3 Van Nuys Superior Court

To: Juror #3, Van Nuys Superior Court, Dept E, Los Angeles, CA, excused on
November 13.

This is Juror #4 and I would really like to say Hi and continue our
conversation.
You can reply to this email or call 818-831-1492.
Dear ******
DO YOU KNOW JUROR #3?

She is WF, 30's, 5'5", slender build, short light brown hair.
She served on jury duty November 12 & 13, Van Nuys Superior Court in the
San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, CA.

Contact me or please pass this message along to her. Thanks, and Happy
Holidays!

Before anyone flames me for posting this, I know it's spam, but what I can't work out is what it's for - is the phone number premium rate, or is it just to validate email addresses?

**UPDATE** 29/12/2003
This Google cache of an Excel document has that phone number belonging to someone called Steve Davis, email [email protected] Could he genuinely be looking for someone?

**UPDATE 2** 29/12/2003
It appears to be this guy - Steve Davis, CPIM. The career description fits as well as them both being in California. The question still remains - is he genuinly trying to find 'Juror #3', or is someone else pissed off at him enough to spread his phone number around the internet? Steve, if you're out there, let us know.

I also got this spam today, and thought it quite strange.

Tried calling him?

Maybe he's a spammer who wants to hook up with this woman. Since it's cheap to SPAM, might have made sense..
