Lisa,
 
Are you in the office?
—————————————————————–
This is an interesting email as it only asks you to reply to an email. The catch its the email is false. You will be socially engineered (guided by the bad guy on the other side) to provide information (possibly financial or credentials or the sort) to the bad guys.
