Just ordered something off an online store and got this email the next day. Is this a scam?

So I ordered a graphics tablet off of an online store called www.alshop.com (which is based in the UAE). I paid with a credit card and went through the MasterCard verification process so it all seemed legit.

But then I received this email today: http://i.imgur.com/ZYX1XsT.png and I’m wondering whether this is legitimate procedure, because I have certainly never seen anything like this before. Since when do people get emails from the store they just bought from *asking* them for their credit card details and address? Especially if I already put that down under Delivery Information and Credit Card Information when submitting my order?

Something seems off, but the website seems legit so I’m confused.

  1. Screams scam to me. Also, weird grammar/capitalization use. Maybe get the legit email or phone number of the company and call to question the email…..or let them know their system has been hacked.
