    Yes, never believe any of these unsolicited emails you receive, no legit email would require you to enter such delicate information, and without any identification that the email is legit.

    Whenever you receive emails claiming you have won something, your account has been hacked and you need to verify its your account via giving account details/bank details etc.....They are a scam.

    The only people that win, are the thieves, that just acquired very delicate information which could be used in a harmful way which could damage your well being.

    If you have an internet banking account, before you even log in, your bank will warn you that they'll never ask you for your account registration information. I myself have read that notice about 150 times each year for the last 12 years (for one account, for the other I log in a bit less).

    But thanks for making sure.
