They don't send you send such mails to a person. Its a clear case of phishing spam mail. If you go through the mail It won't have any logo in it or any last word that this mail has any link with visa. You should contact your bank for further details and don't start typing your card details as it may cost your card and money.

I also received such kind of email before. I don't usually trust email sent to my inbox specially if it's asking for my details. Bank would not ask for those information via email they would personally ask you by phone call. Don't trust unknown emails it might cause you trouble. So be careful. Call your bank about this and they will assist you.

Hi, It is a scam, period. I have read stories about emails like that, and still has to receive one. Stories tell of similar emails only to find their accounts hacked and used by other persons. One almost gave all the information before realizing she been had, she contacted her bank which advised a wait and see attitude. A few months later, somebody tried to charge her account for online purchases. Having been alerted, the bank refused to pay the amount, almost catching the culprit in the process.
