    Good day,

    Recently, I received an email supposedly from Apple stating that their records showed that I paid for a Radeongate repair (which I didn't, but I do have a Radeongate-affected MBP in which I reballed myself) and that I was to click a link (which redirected me to the Apple support site and a S/N input, then given the option for them to call me).

    Naturally, I was suspicious. Upon further inspection of the sender's address, I'm suspecting that this may be a phishing attempt.

    Anyway, hope this helps.

    The sender's address, assuming it is not spoofed, has apple.com as its top most domain. That makes it a valid legitimate email.

    Post the email header (without your personal details obviously)

    It's alright, I contacted Apple support about it and they said that it's the address that they use to send out newsletters and all.
