I was recently sent an email confirming that I purchased spotify premium on September 21, 2018, and was notified that I would be charged $12.99 on a credit card. This was jarring for multiple reasons. For starters, at the time of writing this, the date is September 20, 2018. Second, not only have I not purchased spotify premium, I deleted the spotify app a long time ago and have not logged into my account in forever. Lastly, I don't own a credit card. Considering that last fact, I don't believe I've been hacked or had my credit card information stolen (again, I don't own a credit card). I'm so unfamiliar with spotify in general that I don't even know how to ask about this. Also, when I go onto my account, it says I don't even have premium. And none of the links in the email work, they all just redirect me to an error page on a site called ow.ly. What's going on?

Thanks for the response. I removed the screenshots for security.
That is a scammer trying to get you to provide your info. Here are the next steps to take:
A helpful tip, is if you recieve an email similar to this one - check the sender email address. Also, check for spelling and grammer errors (as some scam emails are harder to spot).
If you have any other questions, you can always reach back out, and I'll be happy to help out :)
