    Ok, I'll go and have a look, but I don't know what they're going on about with the card situation. I don't even use it. Plus I don't remember my username and password

    Can I get in trouble even though I know nothing about what they're talking about in the email?

    I know! I realised that when I clicked the link and it asked me for it. I sent it to the spoof email and addy and they replied and I just deleted that email.
