What is "Web Connects"

I have just had an email from "Web Connects" giving my account number, user ID and password. I have not been in contact with them; in fact I have never heard of such an organization. I suspect something rotten here. What does anyone know?

AVG showed no known viruses.

Your details for what - a subscription with them? Or for something else?

Hello Kate B,

Apparently I have joined it but it is news to me!

does it want money from you? If not, just delete it and forget it. It sounds as though it's some kind of phishing exercise.

Kate B,

No money; I agree it is probably pishing. I just wondered if anyone knew of it.

It probably is pishing; obviously no-one seems to have heard of it. I have deleted it. "Resolved".
