I'd say it's a template for an automated system. For some reason (possibly related to the IQ of the person trying to send it) it hasn't been processed. Basically the system would randomly select one of each of the words in the fields to generate semi-unique emails.

That's my guess, anyway.

Receive the funds from either our company or our partners to his/her designated bank account approved by our manager;
Withdraw the funds, keeping specified money transaction fee as a commission for your services (usually between $150 to $500, no less than $150 per transfer);
Send the rest of the money to our company and/or our partners via the specified transaction operator.
Report transaction details back to the manager.
