I received one and actually clicked on it. It looked pretty real. Here's a copy and paste:

I clicked on the EX link within the graphic and the URL in that is legit for Experian. I clicked using my iPhone and the page was slow at loading and I closed it after 3-4 seconds of waiting. It wasn't until I logged on my e-mail using my Network Solutions e-mail page that I saw the ZIP file at the bottom (despite not showing as an attachment in the attachment column....not enclosed) and also noticed the exprpt.com URL at the intro of the e-mail (not sure if that's legit or not). It got me.
ETA...the typesetting is off.

Man, it had me nervous to open any Ex emails. But, looks like the ones I have are legit from their normal support email
