    Had an email....

    But I've never signed up for anything. Anyone else had one of these?

    It will just be phishing spam , i get loads from the likes of natwest , tescos for banking saying i need to update my security sh*te , as well as loads from apple saying about my account has been accessed from someone else , < i haven't had an apple account in all most 10 years
    delete and forget .

    Thanks. I do get the usual scams coming through from time to time but they're usually filtered into my 'spam' folder (google webmail), but this one didn't. I think you're probably right anyway.

    I received the same email yesterday; it was emailed to an account I haven't used in a few years although one which I probably did use to sign up to Minecraft 5 or so years ago.

    A Google search of the email contents brought me to this thread. As far as I can tell, it isn't a phising scam and appears genuine. I'd say someone at Mojang made a mistake with the database...

    I've been trying to get back into my account but had no email. Maybe you got mine?
