Not seen this Royal Mail phishing email before

Received the following email:

Quite convincing (English seems ok) except for the Dear Customer and the links doen't go to the Royal Mail.

 

Oh, yes, I don't have a card registeredWink

Edit: Added email to the title.

Somebody mention fishing? ..Oh, that sort of phishing. Seems good enough but have you sent a copy of it by email to Royal Mail to see if it's a con? They might not know about it.

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

All their pages regarding scam emails tell you to go to the Contact Us page from a link at the bottom of the current page.

 

Couldn't find anything there about where to report it. I did find the following email address (scam.mail@royalmail.com) but that seems to be related to snail mail.

Yep, you're right. There doesn't seem to be an email option. I just clicked the ;'Contact Us' link and it seems it's snail mail or phone.
