This arrived in my inbox this morning and thank God I thought it looked suspicious. I checked the order #(redacted) and it did not exist. I then called Apple and he said that I was the 11th caller in the last 90 minutes who had received this e-mail. I did not click the link, but I'm betting that it was to "confirm" credit card information so that scammers could steal it. Apple is aware that this is happening and is working on it.
Just wanted to warn others.
