Thanks Alex,

jimLE, thanks for posting that totally bogus email, who would fall for that.

I am sure i delete some valid emails from time to time.  But unless you positively know who sent you the email NEVER even open it much less click on any links, nor ever provide information like Paul the Engineer is asking for.
