This morning I received an email from the above, asking for confirmation (and information - password, user name, etc) of the account. Have others had this? Is it real? Or am I just being paranoid? Comments?

TIA :)

No one will ever ask you for your password. This is most probably phishing.

What was the email addy?

A company will never ask for such personal details via email.

It 'looked' like Telecom, but I'll check when I get home later...
