Just received an important looking gmail which on inspection only SEEMS to contain a pdf file.

The red warnings are that it says I requested it (which I didn't) and it makes no PERSONAL reference to what it is.  It has a generic feel to it and bears all the marks of  malware.

Is there any way I can check it please? I use Windows 8. Or should I just open it in Linux on another computer?  [I have already "inspected element" and again it seems to be a .pdf file]

HERE IS THE TEXT:  (obviously I'm not going to copy the element!)It is from an attorney though I haven't spoken to him for a few years and dont want to now.  The origination gmail address looks a bit like his real one.

I've just attached an Important Document as you requested on Google Drive.

Click on disclosure.pdf to view. Thanks.
