Dangerous spam?

I just received an email from ”Dropbox Transfer” asking me to open enclosed files re ”Account Payable”. Is this OK or dangerous spam?

In that case, it seems like a legit email send by us through the Transfer feature @Bosf.

If the sender is unknown to you though and/or you weren't expecting something from anyone, you can forward the suspicious email to abuse@dropbox.com and we'll investigate further. 

Let me know if you have any other questions!
