I highly doubt that xtra would use a short URL. (odun is a short URL service).

Forward details of it to xtra's support (not the e-mail address it came from) and do not click the link or respond to the e-mail in anyway.

It certainly looks fishy, whenever i tried to go to that link it just timed out so it may not even be functioning anymore, certainly looks like a scan
