Many of the sentences don't end with proper punctuation and strange capitalization of some words stand out as red flag, but if you casually read the email and click on the attachment like the email asks you could be in for a world of trouble.
To avoid these phishing scams, WHNT News 19 says:
Don’t click on links in an unexpected email.
Don’t download or open attachments from an anonymous sender.
Be cautious of generic emails with little or no specific details of your account.
Call Apple Support if you believe you’ve received a phishing email to check the legitimacy.
