This is a very odd email. It’s fake – you haven’t activated anything. The only link in the email goes to accountingweb, which appears to be a legitimate site. In fact they even warn you about this email on their contact page.
Usually emails like this contain a fake unsubscribe link – with the scammer hoping you will panic into clicking on the link – where they will either take your account details or try to infect your computer with a trojan.
Nothing like that happens here. In fact nothing happens. I’m not sure what the purpose of the email is. Rest assured, though, that you haven’t activated any services at accountingweb.com
