Looks like a phishing scam to me:

Firstly, most people have really easy passwords that can be hacked fairly quickly. Take a look at one of the websites below and see if your details have already been obtained:
PWD Query
Have I Been Pwned

If you have, then get yourself a password manager. I use LastPass although there are many others out there. I use LastPass because it is free and works on my PC (a plugin for my browser), iPad and Android phone (via the free app). It will generate secure passwords for you.

Secure as many websites as possible by enabling two factor authentication - something you know (your password) and something you have (a security token such as an app on your phone). I use several - mainly Duo, Microsoft Authenticator and Steam Guard Apps.

Finally, be aware that the internet is full of douchebags trying to get your information via Social Engineering attacks (Remember Cambridge Analytica?) well phishing attacks come in all shapes and sizes so go to the website below and take an eight question quiz to see if you could be phished:

Also guys and gals, if you are not sure please ask questions. There's some peeps around here who are very clued up on all this. Don't be a dope, ask. Only an idiot remains uneducated.

If you don't want to ask on the forums send me a PM, I will be discrete for you.
