The above email is a scam - this one isn't a particularly convincing email as the formatting is based on Microsoft Office formatting and is not supported on many up-to-date system.

If we go to the link in IE, we immediately receive a warning regarding the domain of aaryacreation.in

This means that the domain has been reported by other users with IE and should be avoided - close the browser and delete the email.

If we look at the fake website itself we can see that the formatting doesn't really work:

The links top right are dead and do not even show the arrow to click on when hovered above - close the site and delete the corresponding email and mark it as junk if you have the option.

Metro Bank are a big target at the moment so do be careful if you are a user - check every email before taking any action!
