The email is a piece of social engineering that relies on you wanting to know how much your colleagues are earning. Click the link and you get redirected to cms-wideopendns.com (a DSL subscriber in Span) then trackorder.commercialday-net.com (in China). It doesn’t seem to work properly, but then it might just be resisting the tools I am throwing at it.

In any case.. avoid this one.
