Please start again and explain - your posting does not make any sense.

Unfortunately there are a lot of phishing emails like this out there. If you are ever unsure about the legitimacy of an email, don't click on any links, open attachments or respond. You can always contact the financial provider or company on a legitimate phone number that's listed in the phone book or similar.

You can find lots of information about this on Action Fraud's website: http://www.actionfraud.org.uk/fraud-az-phishing
