This fake RBS spam leads to malware:

From:     Bankline.Administrator@rbs.co.uk [Bankline.Administrator@rbs.co.uk]
Date:     25 June 2014 15:25
Subject:     Outstanding invoice

Dear [redacted],

Please download on the link below from dropbox copy invoice which is showing as unpaid on our ledger.


I would be grateful if you could look into this matter and advise on an expected payment date .

Many thanks

The link isn't a Dropbox link at all, but it downloads an archive file from [donotclick]figarofinefood.com/share/document-128_712.zip which contains the malicious executable document-128_712.scr which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/54.

Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] show that it attempts to phone home to babyslutsnil.com on (Tocici LLC, US). That domain was registered a few days ago with the following (possibly fake) details:
