No. But it is a blatant phishing exercise to steal your email credentials. (Or a very very very poor communication from MAAF!). Report it to MAAF.

Our Valued Customer,


That's as far as you need to go - obviously a scam already. No name, no "Dear" and the classic "valued customer".

Emails like this that ask for your detials or want you to click on to a link are so blatantly suspect,especially if you look for the spelling mistakes,or bad grammar.It's always there.But it must work sometimes else why would these fraudsters keep doing it.

I was just wondering if they had targeted many people.
