Phishing news

I've received three emails this morning, all purporting to be from Livejournal (and they DO look genuine!) thanking me for my payment of $0.99 and advising that my order is being processed. They very kindly provide a link which I can click to check the progress of my order, too.
Of course my lj account shows no such transaction. And yes, I had to check, thinking perhaps I'd advance-ordered a v-gift for someone's birthday then promptly forgotten about it.
Anyway, just a warning to all. Email properties show that it does come from the Livejournal domain, with a username of accounts, and the link provided also comes up as being a livejournal site (not that I've clicked; simply hovered mouse above).
Has anyone else received these?
