Is receiving test emails from my account a sign of potential fraud?

1 0 0

I have received three 'test' format emails today from my Shopify account and they are not from me since I have not run any test emails. They are from a John Smith (fake)with order #9999, plus the shipping address of "Steve Shipper". How is this happening and should I be worried? They are not showing up anywhere in my account dashboard, but I am getting a bit worried about them. They have run three emails today.

I looked up the order numbers and they don't exist.

FYI sample of email below.

Payment processing method

Delivery method

Hi, did you ever receive any answers on this one? I have noticed the same John Smith fake order in my junk. But oddly enough I think it may be when you test notification, because around the time I did a test notification I never got any on my email because I put word test in the body of email. But in my junk I saw this same John smith order 9999 information. Hopefully you get clarification from Shopify.

Take it easy, that is a SAMPLE EMAIL sent by yourself when you edit notifications forms.
