If the transaction was made by mistake please contact our customer service.
Receipt of payment is attached.

Yeah as if Nedbank will send e-mails to their clients from a GMail account. This is sign number one that this is a scam.
No greeting, just transaction completed. How much is £02003 anyway? This is sign number two that this is a scam.
A zip file called Payment document (10.03.2104).zip was attached to this e-mail. This zip file contained an executable file with the name: Payment document (09.03.2104).exe. This file contains the Trojan horse that will most likely monitor your keystrokes and the websites you visit on order to steal sensitive information like passwords and pin codes. The main target in this specific case is the login details to your bank account.
The scammers seem to be confused with the date of the transaction, is it for 9th or 10th of March? Did the scammers travel through time or are they just dyslexic, because it is the year 2014 and not 2104. This is sign number three that this is a scam. Your bank will never make trivial mistakes like this.
The zip file containing an executable file, disguised as some form of receipt is sign number four that this is a scam. Your bank will most likely send you proof of payment in PDF format, but that is when you make a payment not when you receive money. Furthermore, if the bank knew they made a mistake, why not just reverse the transaction?
