Just a friendly reminder not to fall for such scams. Also, notice the legitimate Apple email address (although full header reveals the true "from" address)

Sounds to me like someone has identified your email address or AppleID. Im just guessing, but if someone had access to your account and was reading your emails, and then noticed your confirmation email from Apple regarding your order, maybe they thought they could fool a "Custumer"?

I had something similar happen a few years ago where I added a credit card to my AppleID and then started to receive all sorts of strange messages like this along with a few small unidentifiable charges. Makes you wonder how this happens...

Stop using your iCloud email for shady crap and you won’t have that problem.
