Hoax e-mail asking to send your e-mail ID and password to avoid loosing your account!

 
There is a Hoax e-mail in circulation with a subject head " VERIFY YOUR ONLINE MAIL ACCOUNT NOW TO AVOID CLOSE!!! " asking the recipients to send your e-mail ID and password to avoid loosing your e-mail account. It is a bogus message. Never respond to such e-mails and never disclose or divulge your details in return. Keep it in mind that reputed service providers will NEVER ask you for such account details through an e-mail!
 
A copy of the e-mail is given below fro reference:
