Costco expedited delivery problems?

I got an e-mail with the following message: "unfortunately the delivery of your order_____(order #) was cancelled since the specified address of the recipient was not correct. You are recommended to complete this form_____ and send it back with your reply to us. Please do this within the period of one week - if we don't get your timely reply you will be paid your money back less 21% since your order was booked for Christmas."

Strange, I have never ordered anything from Costco and don't even have an account.

I called their customer service number this morning and heard just to delete/ignore any such messages. I'd say spam.

Almost as irritating as having phone calls from "Rachel" with card holders services!

Just another in the neverending wave of spam. I've been getting them from "Wal-Mart" quite often lately.

It's a clever spam trap that will probably ensnare a few unsuspecting people. The gist of the info is believable enough in the Christmas confusion to trick the less aware of Internet scams.
