Weird mail

OK, I just got this peculiar email. If I go to the page it doesn't seem to have anything at all to convince me they actually know who I am, or have any connection with Glastonbury themselves. It just asks for the title, initials and surname of my guest. Do I really want to fill this in? Has anyone else got one? [relevant bits of headers included] Actually now I double-check the original confimation email came from helpme@seetickets.com and the same IP, which is a bit more reassuring. But still, this is a completely noddy operation and I'm still not convinced I really want to go fill this in.
