"Thank you for scheduling your online payment" email leads to malware

The spammers seem to be busy today, using an old trick of embedded a spam in a template lifted from a legitimate business. This particular one is from Chase bank in the US, they key "hook" they use to get people to click is:
Thank you for scheduling your recent credit card payment online. Your ($USD) $117.00 payment will post to your credit card account (CREDIT CARD) on 08/06/2010. 

This seems to be exactly the same attack as used here and here, although in this case the intermediate site had already been cleaned up and the malicious payload could not be delivered.
