The sender's name varies. So far I have seen three different versions of the attachment (in the format remit85752524.doc or similar) with VirusTotal detection rates in the range of 2/54 [1] [2] [3] and the Malwr reports [4] [5] [6] show similar characteristics to this spam run plus this additional URL:

This IP is allocated to McHost.RU in Russia and can be considered as malicious. The payload is unknown, but is possible Dridex.
