The email states that if customers did not purchase the item they should click on the link provided to obtain a refund.

Once redirected to a web page they are asked to fill out their card and other personal details.

This is a spam email with links to a malicious web page that is being used to harvest personal details, possibly in order to access victim’s bank accounts.
