Unusually, this email does not appear to be sent out by a botnet but has been sent through Gmail. The link in the email goes www.ebayonline.com.ng/download/ohafi/jfred/Purchase%20Order%20Copy_pdf.7z where it downloads a file Purchase Order Copy_pdf.7z  which (if you have 7-Zip installed) uncompresses to the trickily-named (1) Purchase Order Copy.pdf    ___________________   (2) Delivery Time and Packing.pdf    _______________________    _____ Adobe Reader.pdf or in    .exe

As you might expect, this is malicious in nature and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 34/57. The Malwr analysis indicates that this installs a keylogger among other things.
