Your order ###### for Digital Camera xxxxxx ( which does not exist ! ) has been accepted for the amount 697 Euros ( it was pounds above )

Your card will be charged in that amount

It's a scam/spam.

Delete it and forget it.

Yes, it is - I found something on the Newcastle Univ. Site. I too got one of these e-mails on Sat & got quite panicky - as you say - unable to contact Dell. On the basis that the weblink given Dewar-quality.com contains the order number & two links (supposedly) to Dell online I tried calling Dell today to make them aware.Unfortunately, they have the customer Abuse Phone System. On 08709075818 I got so far but couldn't progress any further without a customer number. On 08709060010 I thought I was actually going to speak to someone - when the line went dead...
