The last line gave me a laugh.. "Please remember we guarantee the security of messages sent by email." Attached to the message is a file LloydsCase-0995479.zip which in turn contains a malicious executable LloydsCase-07052014.scr. The binary is identical in function to the one used in this TNT spam run doing the rounds at the same time.
