Notification of New Account that doesn't exist

Hello,

I received two emails this morning that have me concerned.  Most concerning is that I don't recall ever getting emails in the past notifying me of new account setups and these accounts don't actually exist in our user account area of admin either. An example is included below with some information changed for purposes of a public forum.....

Account Details for crzm6kxy at mydomain.com
June 22, 2014 at 2:49AM

Hello My Full Name,

A new user has registered at mydomain.com.
This e-mail contains their details:

Name: crzm6kxy
E-mail: pei349463@outlook.com
Username: crzm6kxy

Please do not respond to this message. It is automatically generated and is for information purposes only.

Not knowing what this could be I changed all email passwords this morning and hosting account password for this website. Could this be a vulnerability or am I just overreacting to these emails? Thank you for any help in this matter.

That message would be from where you purchased or registered you domain name and did not come from CCP.

Thank you for your response! I checked our registrar account and there are no new accounts from there either.  The fact that the email contains our website domain makes it appear to be coming from our shopping cart.
