It is a scam for sure.

Re: email is this a scam/spam?

FWIW....Whenever you call an 800 toll free number, they get your telephone number and the name associated with that number.  This provides for a two fold scam.

1. It gives them the opportunity to purport their scam for Credit Card or Bank info. 

2. It provides them with your telephone number and name which in turn can be sold in darkweb circles for profit.

If I was to get the norton service they were supposedly selling, I wouldn't. I know it isn't that much. First of all.

And second, I would go to Norton website to order it anyway.
