Almost identical to this scam. It's a scam. And why did you leave the phishing link live in your post? I've asked the Mods to remove it.

Oh dear - in copying the message you will see that hovering over "Verify my identity" you get a live link to the phishing web site in the email. You need to careful when posting this kind of mail on the Forum. The Mods will fix it shortly.
