Question: Is this a scam email pretending to be apple team?

Hello. I got an email from 41TX8ttIyn.amsservice.eIm0ycCz@apple.com that said my apple id has been suspended (out of nowhere, suddenly) and when I tried to verify, the link asked for my credit card info. I’m not suspicious at first because the webpage looks so similar to apple.com but then the url is so long which makes me scared to enter a credit card info. Anyone has experience this before? I didn’t violate any rules. Link for “Account Verification Form”: https://appleid.apple.com.area-form-d2938a8fgd25b31aed1d8e26864192.ca/Pages?ref= checks&protocol=ssl&sessionsid=Y7x3z0aHkhnXdSd0k1V1oHiyox5AyqhxyPB7QLPa3c8h4lhpn drLUJjjhpUPPbnn0YvQJl0Nx84***2RAtCvcW

It's a phishing email (Apple doesn't send emails about accounts being suspended, unless you had contacted them and it's a reply, which that isn't ; and accounts don't get deleted), you could forward it to Apple : reportphishing@apple.com , and then delete it.
