I received an email today claiming to be from Shopify thanking me for signing up to Shopify payments and asking me to confirm my identity, the strange thing is that I have been using Shopify payments for 6 months now. This is the email snapshot,

Nick here from Shopify.
I can only see the content of what you've sent and not the full e-mail, but from what you've sent it does seem legitimate. It is also normal for the team to ask for identity documents after some time too, so there is nothing to worry about regarding that aspect.
While we can't investigate or take a look at your store admin to know more via the community for security and privacy reasons, I do encourage you to reach out to our primary support team to talk to someone in real time to make sure of this for you.
I know it's not ideal to have to take this extra step, and I am more positive about this email than not, but to ease your mind and make sure everything is all up to date, I would recommend it. Please visit our support team here and log in to your account to create a support request for this!
