    but it is not too late, you can save your account I get the access back to our features and services just click On " Save it for me " and follow the instruction, we may ask you an extra information as security procedure to insure that are the account holder.

    This is an obvious phishing attempt.

    When the spelling, grammar and tone are that appalling it's a sure sign of a phishing attempt.

    (Although I appreciate that to non-English as a first language speakers it might not be immediately obvious.)
