Alliance and leicester scam??

I've received a letter through the post sometime this weekend supposedly from Alliance and Leicester. I think it's possibly a scam and I'm slightly concerned. it's addressed to the correct address and the right surname but to a "Mr Samuel X" There isn't any mention of my details as such...is there a known scam out there? I'll probably just ignore it....unless i should contact the real alliance and leicster....hmmmm....any advice? Seems weird.

thanks...i'll try and get hold of them.

Technically you opening mail that was not addressed to you is a crime ;-)

just bin it, if they were trying to steal your identty, sending it to your house is not a good start - ring A&L and tell them
