Spam Scam

In e-mail, I just received the following alert:
Dear Customer,
Del Norte Credit Union temporarily suspended your account.
Reason: Billing failure.
We require you to complete an account update so we can unlock your account.
To start the update process click the link below :

The information provided will be treated in confidence and stored in our secure database.
If you fail to provide required information your account will be automatically deleted from DNCU database.
Copyright ¨Ï Del Norte Credit Union, All Rights Reserved

Except I do not have an account of any kind with Del Norte Credit Union.
So this is obviously a scam, to extract from the unwary personal information which can be turned against them, possibly by pillaging the accounts.
Be Wary!

If that's the only phishing email you've had to date, count yourself lucky.
