e-mails from Ian Cole?

Has anyone else received an e-mail like the one quoted below?  Has my ID been pinched?  I don't have a domain as such - although I can understand why someone would think so - given the way plusnet compile their user names.  Should I be worried?  Is this a scam or try on?  Should I respond?
Do I need to do anything?

In my opinion you should NOT respond as it is most likely a scam.
A large portion of such emails is spam backscatter and can be safely ignored.
I'd be interested to see what you receive next, probably a bill Wink

Is Bill a Brother of Ian?
I agree with Strat - completely ignore it. Its either a chancer, or a delusional soul who has made a mistake, either way you don't really want to be talking to them.
