Its the email address and web address that will fool people.

I just remember the good old rule - 'we will never ask for your details as we already have them' and ignore any emails like this, no matter how genuine they look. If the worst came to the worst, my account would be closed and I would make a new one.

If in doubt, call the company and ask what to do

Its called phising. Anyone with an e-mail account will of had one of these. They often target e-bay, random banks.

As a rule no respectable site will ask you to enter details by following a link from an e-mail. If they do need to advise you of something they will ask you to visit their site and log into your account.

On 1st March I received a phishing email from 'PayPal' with similar instructions. I forwarded it to the PayPal security who are investigating the source.

The bogus email was sent to the address that I use for spam. It looked good but asked the wrong questions, had incorrect details about my account and said that "We would like to ensure that your account was not accessed by an unauthorised third party."

No prizes for guessing who is going to be the "unauthorised third party" if you asnwer their questions. :x
