Brilliant phishing attack probes sent mail, sends fake attachments

I've occasionally received emails claiming to have "attachments" but which were actually links to documents on the sender's email system. Nothing dodgy (in the malware sense) in this case but not a nice way to do it, and I don't trust it at all. In my case I recall they may have been unsolicited CVs from a recruitment agent so draw your own conclusions!
