If you didn't order anything, just delete the email. It's probably a phishing attempt.

✔ Best Answer
Emails like this one are aplenty... Spam, phishing, sucker messages... Simply delete it. Do "not" click on, or respond to any links within the message (if you open it); do not reply, acknowledge it or communicate with sender at all. Any response from you confirms it as a valid email address, and invariably more of the same will follow (some possibly being rather nasty (malware in content too).

Put your email address in Google search. If you find it then it must appear somewhere on the net and that would be your answer - the spammers engines search for them.

I get regular emails allegedly from paypal. They go to one hotmail account that has never been used for paypal; so that series are obviously "fake/fraudulent. They also go to a hotmail account I use with paypal... However hotmail (or outlook.com as it is now) doesn't always flag them as spam or suspect (it does sometimes); but I ignore them and delete them In both situations. I do not respond etc.

Similarly with emails allegedly from Apple - into a hotmail account never linked to Apple... Clearly they are fake etc. and so simply deleted...

If in doubt - simply ignore/delete it... Even if it says this or that account has been compromised, or they need to reconfirm your details (and say click or go here - or something like). And never give any bank info in response to "any email" seeking confirmations etc... Similarly for accounts like papal...

Email addresses are frequently sold to advertisers. Also spammers etc. generate whole series of addresses with similar names etc. and fire junk to them all.They don't always know that any given email address is actually valid and/or active. Responding to such junk indicates the address is viable/active...

Posting an email address anywhere (computer forums, chat room and so) where it can easily seen... means programmes, used to scan the internet for visible email addresses (in the clear as it were), will simply hoover them up and then bombard the user accordingly with junk, fake, scam messages.
