It's not even "Geek Squad", they call themselves "Geeki Squadl". I guess that avoids some "liability" of copyright by using a different name.
Red flags for sure it is a scam. The so called toll free number does not exist in Internet searches, so it is a front of some sort.

I have received lots of phishing/scam emails lately. Many of them with GMail addresses. Don't know why I'm so lucky lately. Seems like they come for a while and then drop off and then you get a bunch for a week or so and then they drop off again.

I regularly get stuff like that. I use Thunderbird as my mail program. It automatically flags a lot of stuff as junk mail but I can add new flags at any time. It helps a lot.

Yup, I got the same email a week or so ago. I also get the one from Amazon confirming my purchase ot a $999.99 iPad.
A million emails sent out at a cost of $0.10 total and one person falls for it and is out thousands.
