Mystery Microsoft message

In todays offering I have recieved a message purporting to come from
Microsoft
With the headline 'Re:Approved'(Ref3394-65467)
the message reads
"All the information is in the attached file."
There is an ATTACHMENT with the title " screen_temp.pif (51.8 KB)"

As I have no contact with Microsoft - one wonders why they should write to
me ?- If indeed they have.
Needless to say the attachment lays unread in a zip disk just in case it is
another nastie.
Any one had a similar experience?

Itr is a virus that is doing the rounds and has been widely reported.

DO NOT OPEN THE FILE. DESTROY IT AND ALL ITS CONTENTS.

Do not open it. Microsoft would not send you or anyone else unsolicited e-mail.

After deleting it run an AV scan to be on the safe side.
