Western Union doesn't have money for your 'withdrawl'

This email looks like it was sent by Western Union, but it was actually sent via an open relay at, which is in the Ukraine. The from address was forged. The link in the email, which I've deleted, goes actually to an executable file which contains malware that would infect an unprotected Windows PC. Don't click on links in messages like this - just delete them.
