Ours didn't work initially either.  Eventually it did.

It's definitely real, but seems like they're handling it as incompetently 
as possible.  We got numerous copies to the same email address, the logins 
didn't work initially.  The phone numbers given are of questionable 
utility.  Virtually no useful information was provided.  My attitude at 
this point is, ignore it until they provide some useful information.
