Received the same email Steve...

Firstly I am not in the UK
Secondly the author can't spell or comprehensively construct a sentence in English.

When you click on the given web address you are diverted to 'susdungo.lv'

Is obviously a webforgery by person/persons with English as 2nd language, designed to trick people into revealing personal or financial information by imitating a source you may trust.

Any information entered on this web page may result in identity theft or other fraud.
