Latest and weird version of suspicious email: Expired email/closing accounts

I got this email today, 12/17/21.  But unlike any previous such emails purporting to be from a Joey Ridz at AT&T, in the body of the email, below the message copied here,  the same message from Joey was repeated 4 more times, but with this above each of the other 4 occurrences: "On Saturday, December 18, 2021, 01:52:35 AM GMT+8, AT&T Account Management <[email scrubbed]> wrote:"  Odd how AT&T Account Management already sent a message tomorrow!   But then, after the 4th iteration of this message, was an entirely new message from a law firm to a  Joey (no last name)!  I copied that message here, too.  I already forwarded this email to AT&T's abuse email.

Dear Joey:
Thanks for the update. Yes it seems travel quarantine periods are easing up. I followed up on the tax computations. I will advise you the soonest I get them. Please send our regards to Ridz and the rest of your family.
Best regards,
