An Email from Xiaomi

I know it's 5:22am where I live, but I was awake for a bit, and checked my email on my iPad.

I got an email (in english) that claims to be from Xiaomi --- one of OUYA's old "everywhere" partners.

The email kind of looks legitimate, except for how I didn't sign up for any Xiaomi services (except back when I suggested Pfhonge could be a game on their box).

I don't really know how I got this or why, so I'm not clicking on the "verify" button or whatever it they want me to verify --- because I need more explanation for what this is about.

Does Xiaomi want my game on their console, or is someone doing something wrong with my email address?

This is being done with my PRIVATE email address --- it's not krisa@icloud.com ----- so therefore this might be somehow legitimate, but I'm not totally certain.

So yeah, got some kind of account sign up from OUYA Everywhere partner Xiaomi at an email address which isn't public, so this could be good news or bad news.  Right now I'm leaning towards 'bad news' and I'm not clicking the verify button because it would be nice to have some more explanation what this is about.

If Xiaomi wants my game --- they'll have to explain that to me. An account registration email alone doesn't fully explain anything, and could be perceived as not right.

So yeah, it could be good, it could be bad, I'm hopeful, but cautious.
