Credit Agricole

How many times have you been told never to reply to emails purporting to come from your bank, asking for personal information. Well, this morning we each received an email from Credit Agricole Languedoc, asking us to send them proof of our identity (we've only been with them for 6 years) and proof of residence. We were also asked to click on two different links within the email to download stuff.

Needless to say I thought that it was a phishing attack but because it looked so kosher I emailed my contact at the bank. She replied saying that the email was legitimate. What a bunch of idiots. How unprofessional. Is it any wonder that this bank has lost billions recently?
