There are worms and viruses with similar message content that are disguised to look like they come from your ISP, but really do not. One give away is the email does not contain your name, username, or account number. Copy and paste some of the text here (including the Subject line) and we will have a look.

BTW, I received two emails yesterday regarding investigation of suspicious activity on my Paypal account. When I read the header information it showed they were from a Yahoo.com email address. :confused:
