Please note: There is no unsubscribe option on this email, as it is a service message, not a marketing communication. This email was sent from an address that cannot accept replies. Please use the contact details above if you need to get in touch with us.

The link in the email actually goes to a download location at Cubby rather than sageone.co.uk, this downloads a file invoice.zip which in turn contains a malicious executable invoice.scr which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 1/56. The Hybrid Analysis report shows that this is Upatre dropping the Dyre banking trojan, and one key indication of infection is traffic to the IP 197.149.90.166 in Nigeria.

Thanks - just had one of those too. If I keep getting this kind of spam I think I will change my email and cull anything I don't use any more.
