This is one of the oldest internet scams alive.
Its called a PHISH.
Basically some scammer, local or foreign, creates a legitimate looking email, and sends it to users asking for information such as :passwords, bank
information, and pin numbers.
Companies will NEVER ask for your information through the mail.
Companies will ONLY send out mail that asks you to type in or copy and paste a legitmate URL to the companies website in order to update information,
make sure your still active, etc.
