After reading this email i did some googling for like how this much information about a person can be misused and after browsing some pages i found that your identity (the info you will send in reply to this mail ) can be used to open a bank account to hide some black money.

There may be other ways you can be tricked, but moral of the story is never respond this kind of emails instantly.
