Based on the From/Return e-mail address and the "Signing In" link referencing an HTML document at Google Docs, I'd say hit the delete button.

Since the email address has a domain with a .de for the country designator (Germany), I think that is a good indicator it is a scam. I don’t think Spectrum is using German email servers.
