phishing email - fyi

Hey all, 
I received this email today at an email address I would never use for signing up for a security service. Also, I don't have McAfee. I'm usually quite good at spotting these things, but it startled me and actually took me a minute to be sure it was fake. 

Just FYI. I don't have a question. 

The from line contains: NoReply McAfee Support
Subject: Receipt Summary#347091

The actual from address is: xuanmisner at gmail -- so, you know, spam at will. 

Here is the text (and also has hidden text that shows up when you highlight it). NOTE this looks different from the original email because this forum keeps adjusting it because it "contains invalid HTML."
