We are writing to you about fact, despite previous reminders, there remains an outstanding amount of GBP 278.59 in respect of the invoice(s) contained in current letter . This was due for payment on 26 August, 2014.

    If the full amount of the sum outstanding, as set above, is not paid within 7 days of the date of this email, we shall have to begin legal action, without warning, for a court order requiring payment. We may also commence insolvency proceedings. Legal proceedings can take effect on any credit rating. The costs of legal proceedings and any other amounts which the court orders must also be paid in addition to the debt.

The link in the email goes to:
[donotclick]tiragreene.com/aspnet_client/system_web/4_0_30319/invoice_unn.html

Which in turn goes to an Angler EK landing page at:
[donotclick]108.174.58.239:8080/wn8omxftff

You can see the URLquery report for the EK here. I would strongly recommend blocking web traffic to 108.174.58.239 (ColoCrossing, US).

UPDATE 2014-09-17:

A second round of these is doing the rounds, leading to an exploit kit on [donotclick]109.232.105.106:8080/xolbnl9ehz (report) so I also recommend blocking 109.232.105.106 (Thyphone Communications, Russia)

The content of the email is essentially the same, but the subject and sender vary. Here are some examples:

[IMPORTANT] Invoice overdue notification
[IMPORTANT] Unpaid invoice notification
Last letter before commencing legal action
[IMPORTANT] Invoice overdue

[IMPORTANT] Recent invoice unpaid
