Ignore it! Why you ask?
Requests your personal details
This is a BIG nono. NEVER, NEVER, EVER SEND THEM YOUR INFORMATION.
Excessively poor grammar is a dead giveaway to the reliability of an email supposedly coming from a reputable company.
Claims to have come from a reputable source
This communication attempts to make it seem like it came from a friend, a lawyer, or co-worker hoping to get you to click on the link or download their attachments.
Phishing for Information
The sender of this email is hoping that you will click on the link and enter your username and password into a specially crafted website that looks like a trusted service. The website of course if fake and any attempt to use your username and password will result in your credentials being compromised.
Ignore it! Ignore it!
If you can't report it, it's best to simply ignore email scams altogether.
