Headspace app store subscription phishing scam

I got quite a convincing phishing email today, it looked like a legit app store receipt for the Headspace, for £9.99. Many of the links go to Apple, and the link at the bottom 'Cancel and Manage my subscriptions' goes to something that looks like the App Store, but had my email address appended to the end.

I removed my address and visited the link If you input realistic data, it asks you for more information about yourself, and you may think you're correcting your erroneous headspace subscription.

If however, like me, you put in something like f*** they redirect you to google with a search for something child-porn related. These people are real nice huh.
