Question No iTunes account, yet email receipt for purchase

My parents don't have an iTunes account yet they received an email from iTunes for 2 digital purchases. The name and address on receipt are not theirs and the credit card info is not theirs as well.
They are not aware of identity theft or related activity.
The email address was a typical "do not reply".
Any similar experiences?
Some sort of phishing?
iTunes mistake?

Thanks

It could be somebody using their address by mistake, but that's usually hard to do as e-mail addresses require validation, and your folks probably would have gotten several other messages before this receipt showed up.

It's most likely a phishing attempt, especially if there are links in the e-mail that purpose to go back to iTunes to "view the receipt" but may actually take you to a phishing page to try and get you to disclose your Apple ID and password.
