I have received the email copied below several times to each of my BT email addresses.
The email, as you will see, is not directly addressed to me, and stats in the same manor as scam emails, and therefore looks suspicious.
I tried following the BT website links to contact BT, and you just go around in circles, there is apparently no facility to forward the email to BT and ask a question,
Is this email real or not
Checking my account, there is no mention of a change in term & conditions, speaking with BT, I am told they are not supplied with the information regarding terms & Conditions.
That leaves me with little choice but to wait until after the 25th August to see if my account stops.
I forwarded the email to Netcraft, they found it not to be suspicious, however, I am not convinced.
If it turns out to be genuine, then it is a pretty poor email, I have seen some better scams than this worded email.
Have any other users come across this email, or know anything about it

@Tony_St I have never had any emails addressed to Dear BT User. Many actually use my first name.
It is a scam and an attempt to get you to click on the link.
I follow a simple rule, never use links in emails, go directly to the website, and check.
I have always thought that banks, financial institution or indeed any legitimate company should stop using email links, and direct people to log into the website. but in this day of companies wanting to track everything you do online, they have brought this scam culture.
Thanks for confirming what I thought was the case.
As has already been pointed out it is a scam.
