ICQ Scam - be warned

I received an email this morning *supposedly* from ICQ. It was not.

It was telling me that if I didn't respond with my ICQ number, password and email address, I would lose my ICQ account due to a security issue on the servers. It looked the part, and had ICQ logos and links to the ICQ service, but was *not* from ICQ.

The email is from "ICQ Password Retrieval System" and is entitled "Please Confirm Your Password!

As always, ICQ (or any other service) would never ask for your password (except for normal ICQ client signon), so whatever happens, please do *not* complete this email form.
