We received an email from (email@example.com) claiming to be a support analyst at Shopify.
The email address is not a Shopify email so I have a feeling this email is fake.

I also recommend enabling two-step authentication on your Shopify account as an added security measure. Did you click the link in the message or respond to the email?
Thank you for your reply.
I have forwarded the email to email@example.com as requested.
No I didn't respond to this email or click on any links in this email.
Will look at setting up the 2-step authentication as an added security measure.
Thanks for your help
This is an accepted solution.
