Just delete it and ignore it. You can set it as junk and the email provider learns more about phishing emails and is more likely to either prevent them or send them to your junk folder.

Delete, Flag the sender and if you have an "Internet Security System" like BitDefender/McAfee/AVG or else: get the browser plug-in to help protect your PC from fishing email or Trojan.

If it's mimicking a service you currently use, contact the service provider and report this to protect yourself in case of potential fraudulent activities in your account with said provider.
