This spam appears to be from Digg, but it leads to a fake pharmacy. It could easily be adapted to distribute malware though, and this is the first time that I have seen a fake Digg message such as this.

The email looks pretty convincing, but the link in it is a redirector to a bogus pharamacy site at dietpilldrugstore.com on 126.96.36.199 (ITD Network, Bulgaria). That IP address has a number of other fake pharma sites (listed below) and is probably worth blocking.
