is this a scam??

I received 2 e-mails today, Feb 9, 2018, stating " Your Riley Rods order from May 1, 2017 is complete".
I do not remember when Riley Rods went out of business and I had to start getting my foam core / graphite handle supplies from another source.
I will not open these e-mails because they may contain a "bomb".
If anyone else received something like t his, please let me know. of course, this may just be an anomaly of my e-mail provider.

Rex,

I had not heard that Mike Pederson had closed Riley Rods. I do remember seeing numerous post that guys were having trouble getting there orders shipped. Have you tried emailing Mike to confirm the validity of the email? I have Mike email address; but don't want to post it on the web site. Send me an email and I will give it to you.

Their website has had a new image as of two months ago and a notation saying "BACK IN 2018" so maybe they have reopened for business.

I would appreciate any phone numbers, etc for Riley Rods. Whenever the web site dropped off, I tried all the contact info I had & nothing went through. I will pursue it some more later today.
Thanks

I got the same e-mail on two completely different e-mail accounts. I suggest this is a scam & will report it to the Feds. Of course, none of the discourse on this site will be mentioned. I will try to protect the site from Federal snooping.
