Is this a scam email?

I have received this email from a personnel by the email after purchasing my laptop online. 


Thank you for choosing Dell. This email is in reference to your recent purchase with Dell. We request you to verify your purchase information by replying from your work or student email address with the bank registered address mentioned for the order number ___. Please note that failure to contact us may result in cancellation of your order. We apologize for any inconvenience caused as Dell is committed to providing a safe and secure shopping experience for our customers.

I have double checked the order number and it is correct, but when I check my order status, it is already confirmed. So I am still a bit suspicious of the identity of this person and the credibility of its request. 

My question is:

1). A scam or valid email?

2). What is the email requesting for? Can you paraphrase it?

I received this email as well from saying the same thing as mentioned above.

The only thing I am worried about is her email address the email came through is and email address in the email signature is Both email address do not match.

Email signature looks dodgy as well. I am pretty sure, Dell would have more professional signature.

@Anonymous, would you be able to confirm this, if this is the genuine email regarding my order.

Thank you for your message. I apologize for the confusion surrounding your order. I have a confirmation that this is a genuine email address.


We will take the signature part as feedback & share it with the concerned team.
