Hello Pete,

You are correct, the message you received is not a legitimate message from Cruzio. It is a spam message.

There has been a recent increase in spam claiming to be from Cruzio with the body of the message being similar to the one you posted. Please do not respond to the message or click any links it may contain. Delete this message and any other similar ones you may receive in your inbox.

Our engineers are aware of the issue and are looking into it. At this time, we are uncertain as to the source of these spam messages, but have put a block in place to prevent our customers from responding with their private information.

In the meantime, you may want to adjust your spam filter settings in order to catch more spam messages like this one. For more information about how to enable or make adjustments to your Cruzio spam filter, click here.
