Realistic looking scam

Just got the email below in my junk folder this morning (I clear it out regularly, making sure no important emails are sent there by mistake )

It looks quite authentic and at first glance , I thought WTF as we cancelled our Virgin account last year when we moved , I thought bmaybe we had missed some small print or something

Then on closer inspection there are a few things wrong with it ....Although it came to my email addy , it was Kath's name on the top of the "Bill" (The Virgin account was always in my name ) and secondly , the "explanation" given as to why the bill was high said Kath may have used her phone abroad or overrun her allowed minutes or data ................That would be a bit hard to do on a 10 Tesco pay as you go phone
Here is the fake scam email
