Haven't come across that particular one but I get e-mails from iTunes saying that someone has purchased
A game or some such using my account. Then I get the usual link to click if it wasn't me . It's a scam to get your credit card details. Just delete it .

I did not get that one but I did get one this week from "Revenue / Welfare"

It was to do with Welfare refund from memory. I just deleted it.

Have had a few lately for some reason.
