simdt.com is a vietnamese registered domain so more than likely a phising mail

I doubt that anything Apple-related would use a hidden directory (.apple) either.

A google for "Order Number: ID31WX175T" shows this scam has been happening since November last year at least.

Re: Spam or I will need to check my credit cards

It's either phishing or virus - I've had a whole lot of so-called "invoice" emails in the last few months which have had a nasty payload, but caught by my filters.
There's also a lot of apparent Court Summons which are probably phishing as well. I'm certainly not due to appear in the Crown Court (we don't have that in Scotland) and some kind of US Federal Court come to that...
