Subject: Phenomenal opportunity for you Support!
You have gained access to a brand new money-generating software.
It doesn't happen so often that "little people" like us have an opportunity to turn 250 £ into a solid retirement.
You do not need any investment experience.
All you have to do to get started is to enter your name and e-mail address on this page.
I activated my account yesterday morning and already made a profit of 6,019 £ (when I last checked it).

The 'here is your private link' actually points to: http://en.solidretirement.info/access/[string] where the string part encodes your email so that they can monitor who clicks their links and so they can make up a list of people to spam in future when they are shut down and made to get a new domain.
The link at solidretirement.info then sends you to http://en.bitcoin-profit.net (or es. or nl. or it. etc., depending on your country) where they will try and defraud you into purchasing false trading stock.
Please report both solidretirement.info and bitcoin-profit.net domains and websites as fraudulent and report these emails to your providers.
