    Hello,

    It is a phishing email. Do not reply! Report it as a spam/phishing attempt.

    :welcome: to Email Questions!

    I didn't reply....but, I wasn't sure since my account was hacked (by a guy warning me to change my info oddly enough) after the PSN debacle. I have changed all my passwords and such though.

    Thanks! I have reported it to Hotmail, MSN, and the US Government
