Saw one today with the following subject:

"Complaint case 044180428. In attention to XXXXX XXXXX"

Where XXXXX XXXXX is the name of one of our senior execs. Attached was a 
.DOC file with what is supposed to look like a PDF inside. Got past 
Trend mail scanning service and MailScanner but fortunately, not the 
cynical exec. Anyone got a good block recipe for these? Can't really 
post the whole email as it has information (Company name [OK, not hard 
to work out]) and the exec's name too.
