Hi Dianne

That also was my second thought.

But I notice that the was the link is embedded in the PDF, prevents it to be 
extracted by pdftotext.

Output by pdftotext

Sehr geehrte Kunden,

übergeben. Die
Auslieferung erfolgt voraussichtlich am 26.05.2015.

Viele Grüße

And three more 'blank' page of white on white garbage text, they know they 
want to trick bayes filters...

Looking at the PDF code:

<< /Type /Annot
/Subtype /Link
/A 11 0 R
/Border [0 0 0]
/H /I
/Rect [ 209.6477 692.8435 281.6477 704.7235 ]
11 0 obj
<< /Type /Action

I'm not fluent in PDF, but I suppose, that is a box put on top of the link 
with action to open that URI.

I'll have a look at the PDF Info Plug-in as mentioned by Kevin. (thank you 

Mit freundlichen Grüssen
