Does it start with "Dear Customer"?
Have you entered a competition?
Is it asking for any details?

Why would they ask you to confirm your email address by sending you an email?

I don't know???
Apologies Helen, what I really meant is that it appears to me to be a scam that has been doing the rounds for some time. My guess is if you confirm your email then it'll be followed up by another and another...

My advice would be to delete it and forget about it...
lol i hope this thread is a joke

You could just contact them via a social network of your choice and they would tell you straight away if it's real or not.
