Phishing". If you are not a IT person, can it be understand ?

---------------
Beware of Phishing


Protect your Username, Password and Transaction Authorisation Code (TAC)

In the field of computer security, phishing is the criminally
fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such
as usernames, passwords and Transaction Authorisation Code (TAC)
details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity such as banks or other
financial entity. Communications purporting to be from IT
Administrators are commonly used to lure the unsuspecting public.
Phishing is typically carried out by e-mail and it often directs users
to enter details at a fake website whose look and feel are almost
identical to the legitimate one. Even when using server
authentication, it may require tremendous skill to detect that the
website is fake. Phishing is another example of social engineering
techniques.

Therefore, please ignore the phishing email, but report the matter to
us immediately.
