Sorry to tell you but this has been around for some time. I was the target -
not a victim - of three of these letters since last year. Naturally I didn't
believe it and warned my ISP what was happening. They have, since, updated
their web page to reflect this but unfortunately haven't done the right
thing and email the users.
