Malware spam: "Daily Mail - Payment overdue" / Raashida Sufi [Raashida.Sufii@dmgmedia.co.uk]

This fake financial spam does not come from the Daily Mail, but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment:

I have seen three different versions of the malicious attachment Invoice.doc (VirusTotal results [1] [2] [3]). The Malwr analysis of these documents [4] [5] [6] shows that the payload is identical to the Dridex banking trojan described here.

Most of these rip of scams are by people with a certain type of name! Had another one on pchealthboost Amit Mehta. Not English names.
