Yup.. the headers are for a LinkedIn themed spam, the body is a NACHA themed one with a link to a malicious file. The bad guys are sending out so many of these that they must be getting confused.
The link goes through a number of legitimate hacked sites and eventually ends up at biggestamigo.com on 22.214.171.124 in Romania (I would recommend blocking the whole 126.96.36.199/24 block at least, or even 188.8.131.52/21 if you want to be on the safe side). The payload looks like a typical exploit kit.
