    I called and spoke to someone on the phone but to double check has anyone else received this?

    I'd be very careful. Maybe call customer service and quote the e-mail and the person who sent it. They would be able to tell you right away, just to be safe.

    seems sketchy ... call customer service as identified on the Thierry Mugler website ...

    It says Celestially yours at the bottom, Thats very Mugleresque (mumbo jumbo) and not something you'd imagine a scammer to put that much effort into

    I would never put my credit card info in an email however, Very dodgy.

    I bought one at a duty free shop for 62 dollars yesterday, I did not know there was such a demand for it.

    I don't think any respectable company would ask for you credit card info in an email.
    But then again, we all know mugler has the worst customer support ever. So I wouldn't be surprised by them.

    Worst customer support and worst website so probably terrible website security. Who knows how many times they have been hacked. Call them about this and give the info over the phone if it is real. They were offering free shipping to anyone who got stiffed before also.

    Red flag. Contact Thierry Mulger directly. Do not send your information unless you know 100% who you are dealing with.

    If this is a scammer, you really gotta give 'em points for doing their homework.

    I just responded to that email the same way. Can I have a link or a phone number to call because I do not feel comfortable giving my credit card through an email. Even if it's for pure malt!
    I looked at the email and it was sent from the exact same email adresss that the other news about ordering pure malt was sent from. So I might just send them my credit card. If anyone took your info you cam just call the credit card company and say that wasn't you. It's easier now a days then it used to be when your info gets stolen.

    Whether it's truly from Mugler or not, I would never provide my credit card info in an email. Not secure at all.

    If anything, just call Mugler customer service and, if it's truly an email sent by them, you can just provide your credit card details over the phone.

    There's too much PM on the market right now from all of these re-releases, you very likely won't get that much.

    A heck of a lot of buzz for no currently solid results is what I say.

    It will be interesting when the deliveries begin to come though, and we see what the production dates are.

    I'm willing to bet it's all returns, and not really a new batch.

    That sounds like a reasonable deal. I always wondered what was in that case.

    It contained Marcellus Wallace's soul. At least, that was always my reading of the movie.

    Well crap, the cat is out of the bag. I'll do $300, Pure Coffee, and the envelope The Perfumed Court mailed to me with a hand drawn robot saying "I am a robot and I like cheese".
