if I were you.

These people send out so many millions of mails that the Bank will probably have received a copy in its own Mailbox

..or ring customer services, tell them what's happened and ask if they want any further details.
If NO it's a done deal an you know for the future

(but my vote goes to wee eddie's advice)

There are usually warnings and instructions on the banks own website on what to do if you think you have received a phishing email. Most banks give examples of types of email 'doing the rounds'
Usually you just click on FW (forward) and send it to the email address given on banks own website for them to check it out. You don't need to compose any message of your own to send with it.
