Spot the scam!

So, I recently received the email below, from a supposed academic journal called the "FRCIJ." Here's what I don't get-- what is the scam? How are they making money (or hope to) out of this?

Dear Dr. Mark Osler,

Hope all is well at your end.

We understand your busy schedule and work commitments that do not permit you to submit manuscript. 

Well, we are planning to release an upcoming issue but due to lack of articles I am unable to release the issue. So I require your kind contributions and valuable support in making remarkable release by end of March. We will be very glad to receive any type of article (Research/Review/Short communication/case report).

If you are unable to submit a full length article at least submit minimum of 2 Page commentary/Mini Review at the earliest possible date enabling us to publish along with others.

Wish your contribution isn't time period having process by means of eminent just like you. 

Your kind acknowledgement within 24 hours is highly appreciable. 

Await your quick comeback.

Best Regards,
Angela Lawrence

Note: If you are willing to be a part of our reviewers for FRCIJ, submit your CV & Research interest.
