Just got this email.

Did not open the link (since the price looked ridiculous).

applecare

The link would lead to a look a like the Apple Log In window.

log in

What is up with that? someone trying to collect Apple ID information for next stage of criminal activity.

It looks like (bad) SCAM to me!?

    It's very obvious spam. Look at the URL. Look at the mis-spellings and poor grammar. – superluminary Oct 6 '14 at 21:48

The fact that the email originates from csparks@pineland.net, and the misspelling (responsinility) and grammar mistake ("In case of not paying") tells me it is a SCAM.

Delete and move on.

    Don't ignore it, report it. – Tetsujin Oct 6 '14 at 18:50

Wouldn't trust it as far as I could spit it.
But don't ignore it - that just lets them keep doing it to other people for longer.

Forward the email to reportphishing@apple.com
as per this Apple KB article - Phishing & Other Suspicious Emails

I recently learned that many of the spelling & grammatical mistakes in such phishing attempts as this are specifically designed to keep 'smart people' away & prey only on the less savvy.
A cruel way to think.
