At least this scammer is a little more friendly than the one that wrote the Lloyds TSB scam, in the last entry on this blog. S/he starts by telling me I am a valued customer. I'm not, of course, as I don't have an account with the Halifax. The scammer is concerned that my account might have been accessed by a third party. Obviously the scammer needs to check this, as they'd hate to have been beaten to my riches by another scammer. They want it all for themselves. They'd weep into their breakfast cereal if they knew how little I keep in my current account!
Just delete the email. Your account hasn't been accessed - but it will be if you give the scammers the infor they ask for.
