Sucker e-mail? Looks like someone is phishing. I recommend that you pass.

I delete so many e-mails both at work and on my home e-mail.  Can this be anything other than a phishing expedition? Who falls for this? E-mail me in 24 hours to see if I was wrong and blocked from further e-mail use (the classic "threat" to get you to participate).

See Microsoft Safety and Security center for more information on: How to recognize phishing email messages, links, or phone calls

Phishing email messages, websites, and phone calls are designed to steal money. Cybercriminals can do this by installing malicious software on your computer or stealing personal information off of your computer.

Cybercriminals also use social engineering to convince you to install malicious software or hand over your personal information under false pretenses. They might email you, call you on the phone, or convince you to download something off of a website.
