Legitimate email, or SPAM/SCAM?

I have recently received an email claiming to be from SimpliSafe, stating that there has been a comment added to my request . . . . but I have no request in process.  The email address seems legitimate (privacy-request@simplisafe.com) but the fact that it refers to a non-existent request seems like a scam.  Has anyone else dealt with this?  I tried customer support by phone, but the automated operator said wait time is over 30 minutes (another disappointing issue altogether.)

Hello kimproemmel,

So sorry  about that very vague note. Did you happen to recently submit a request under the California Consumer Privacy Act? If so, we use a ticketing system to keep track of requests.

This happened to me yesterday but I did not click on the link.  I have no idea if its legit - and didn't put in a request.

@rkmuzio​ As Davey mentioned above, we do use a ticketing system to track these type of requests. I know you said that you didn't submit a request under the California Consumer Privacy Act, but do you know if you made any type of request on another channel that could have been sent to our Privacy team?
