I work for an ISP and they do this all the time stating that the email is from our customer service department and they will lose their email within 24 hours if they do not send their information this is a way for the scammer to get your personal information and cause all kinds of grief within the company itself and possibly in your own personal accounts. Identity thief etc.... Never give this information out : ) Debbie
