Email Scams: I have received an email from my bank asking me to verify my account number and PIN number - is it genuine?

No. A bank would never ask you to reveal your PIN number to them. Many people who have responded to these very official looking e-mails with their bank account details have been defrauded out of a lot of money. See Banking Malware for more information on scams and fraud.
