In this case, the link in the email goes to www.teli.us/ylojwatayv/hjhgoflpob.html which then downloads a file from the same site at www.teli.us/ylojwatayv/Invoice102740_448129486142_pdf.zip - this in turn unzips to a malicious executable Invoice102740_448129486142_pdf.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 1/55.

Analysis of this binary is still pending.

UPDATE: the Anubis report shows network activity to hallerindia.com on I would suggest that this is a good domain to block.
