Never open attachments anyway..
Anything genuine tells you to log onto your own account via your usual website.. They do not include links.

Unfortunately, attachments are a routine part of day to day email use for many users and thus a vulnerability that can only be avoided through very close vigilance.

This one is particularly clever because it is well written, looks on the face of it authentic and had I just submitted an application or change to Spectrum Licensing even I would probably have fallen for it (and internet security used to be one of my areas of expertise)
