The bill was for an MS Surface Pro 478 w/ Signa Type Covered Burgundy
The “bill” is for $3399.99.
Of course it is an address that you can’t reply to, but there is a phone number to call instead of a link to follow. This site shows others have received the same type of msg. with the same phone number. - url removed Padme
I don’t know if he opened an attachment, he is on an Apple computer.
Anyone have any more info on this scam? My Dad is PO’ed.[/img]

Welcome to eater. I've removed the link as these numbers are often spoofed and may belong to innocent third parties not connected to the scam.
It's not the kind of scam we deal with here, but it sounds related to tech support and other phone scams where, had they gotten you on the phone, would have tried to rope you into bogus fees or, asked you to go into a "net meeting" with them where they would try to take control of your desktop. These scams are not baitable. The best thing you can do is simply ignore the emails and block the numbers.
ETA... just noticed the bit about the attachment. It very well could have been a virus. Fortunately most of those are caught by antivirus sw these days and in any event probably wouldn't have been effective on a Mac, but of course should never be opened.
