I have recieved this email twice in the last month and deleted it both times. The screenshot shows it exactly as I got it. The typing errors in it threw up a red flag to me, so I simply deleted it again today. I have no problems with my account, and have up to date AVs running.
Is this something an internet provider mght send? Seems to me, they would already have all this info, from when I log on.

Thoughts?

I'd vote for a scam, clicking the reply to button probably puts a virus on your computer.
The AT&T logo also looks like this, the one on that email seems to be an older version.

No company will ever request your username and password by email. Or ask you to retype it in any other screen than the usual login screen.

So ya - this is a scam. For sure.
