If you don't recognize it as something you initiated, I'd ignore it if it's just an email, especially if that isn't even your name.
Be careful when opening emails that you don't recognize/expect, and do NOT click through that link within the email (the link that you've posted here).
If you do decide that you want to contact the organization about this issue, contact them through their main method of contact that you can discover by going independently to their website. ' wrong person... Got a suspicious activity email, account reset from Groupon at the same time...
I had a Gmail account when it was still in beta in 2003/2004... so I have a very short email address. I get these mistaken emails several times a week for websites catering to purveyors of anime, adoption, sodomy meetups, mental health services, et al.

Good times. I registered as many Vanity accounts as possible for resale when it launched in 2004.
You must not follow any links from within emails that are sent to you telling you that anything needs to be reset. These are often sent by scammers. (Did you change your Groupon account details from within the email that you got which was purportedly from Groupon?)
If you want to change your account details anywhere, you need to go to each website directly, from a clean browsing session and without being logged in to anything (preferably from a different computer too, if you think yours might have a virus or keylogger on it), and update your details that way.
If you are getting all these strange-sounding emails and you now find that you have a locked account at Macy's, etc., this is the time for action -- you need to change all your passwords, user names, security questions, contact email address, etc. -- check to see if there are any unauthorized charges on your credit cards, maybe change your credit card numbers with your cc companies, maybe put a freeze on your credit at the main credit reporting agencies, etc.
If you are looking for detailed steps of what to do and what to think about, there are many sources out there on the internet.
