I had the following email saying that I'd signed up for a vodafone contract in the UK, when I don't even live in the UK. Could you please verify that this is a scam email. There was an attachment that my email quarantined, so I didnt open it.
We thank you for visiting Vodafone Shop!

When you visit a store, you'd get a paper copy of the contract, not an emailed attachment. Also, we don't ask you for a password instore.
On top of that, some of the grammar looks decidedly suspect - "We thank you for visting Vodafone Shop"...
You're right not to open this. You can now find our pages on phishing protection here.

I have a vodaphone account but have never given out my husband's email address which is different to mine, I think it is a scam bacause the bill is cc to about ten different Roberts. HELP.

It sounds like your husband has received a phishing scam email - especially as it was sent to quite a few people. I would recommend that you forward the email to email@example.com and they will investigate and try to track where it came from.
