    Received an email this evening about AppleCare that I didn't buy. What's worrying is that the email has my actual address and name listed, and it has the actual details of a 13inch MBP I bought last month (was a gift for someone else).

    The email isn't asking for any details, and the listed number and web address is real Apple.


    Here's the email:

    Er...isn't that the 3yr parts and labour warranty that comes with all UK Higher Education purchases?.

    Either that or its a refurb purchase and the previous owner bought AppleCare for it.
