Some odd harvesting going on?

I received the same message

Subject : Challenge Response

Received: from mail.tcwireless.us ([67.108.86.20] verified)

Your message

...

has been just received by gmail.com mailserver.

I assumed that this is a phishing scam due to the from / mailserver  
mismatch, which I think this confirms.

Regards
Marshall
