This is the email I received

Quote
Dear Mt.Gox user,

Your account is currently pending review, please visit https://mtgox.com/forms/verification
For those users who have had their accounts marked for review, an explanation of why were are implementing these security measures can be found here:

Security Measures Explained

“Verified” Accounts are eligible for monthly/daily transaction limits of up to 5 times the monthly limit and 10 times the daily limit.

In order to apply for the “Verified” account status please attach a copy of the following documents:
- Your government issued photo ID (passport, permanent residence card or driver’s license) and
- A scan of either your monthly utility bill (power, phone, TV, gas, water, etc.) or a certificate of residency issued by your local government.

Thanks,
The Mt.Gox team

The said link "https://mtgox.com/forms/verification" actually leads to "http://host6057.de1.dp10.ru/"
Don't fall for it. I was about to email them the documents.

You shouldn't still be using the same email address as you did before MtGox was hacked.

No, I don't. Knowing which email address you use opens several more ways to get into the account. I got the same email on the old account, but I knew it had to be phishing because it's not the one I use for MtGox anymore.
