Bogus Email or not?

Hi I have received an email from ebilling@bt.com saying there has been a problem with the payment received which was paid yesterday.

 

This seems to be a legit email address but the email links me to this website

 

Which does not seem to be legit.

 

Can anyone help me out with this as now I am not sure if the payment went through or not.

Below is the full email I have received.

 

 

Dear Customer,

This e-mail has been sent to you by BT Internet to inform you that we were unable to process your most recent payment of bill. This might be due to either of the following reasons:

1. A recent change in your personal information. (eg: billing address, phone)
2. Submitting incorrect information during bill payment process.

Due to this, to ensure that your service is not interrupted, we request you to confirm and update your billing information today

If you have already confirmed your billing information then please disregard this message as we are processing the changes you have made.

Regards,
BT
Billing Department

 

Thanks for your co-operation.

Re: Bogus Email or not?

Given that the link in the email is clearly bogus, and nothing to do with BT, I would assume that the entire email is bogus.  I get these scam emails regularly from people claiming to be BT.

 

They just want your bank details so they can empty your account.
