There are a lot of things wrong with this e-mail.

First, it "appears" to be a purchase for ESET Mobile Security for Android. As you stated, you did not purchase anything from Eset. Next, the license is only for 30 days which interestingly is the same period as Eset's trial period.

Next is the footnote text of the e-mail referencing you as a business customer with multiple links shown for Eset business products downloads. However, ESET Mobile Security is an Eset Home version product.

Finally and most potentially dangerous is the attached .zip file. As far as I am aware of, Eset would not send licensing data in as a .zip e-mail attachment.
