Last modified by seems interesting as it says SONY. The attachment has no links for a user to click. However, it requests personal information and informing to pay 250 K Pounds.

Email within doc : nationwbk@hotmail.com – personal email for UN 🙂
Email also had a number 0044-7010057597. Based on research the number is in london obviously but no information about a business. Likely a personal number.
