Weird email

Yesterday I got weird email. It says it's from Amazon (I didn't order anything from Amazon for months) and it has some doc attached. At first I tried to open that doc (how silly of me), but fortunately my Windows didn't show me appropriate app to open it and then all the sudden looked at the sender address and it looks fishy. So, now I'm pretty sure it's a scam/junk, but here's what's so weird about it: When I looked at the destination to whom this email was sent which by default it must be me, instead of my email it says someone's else email. How is it even possible? So this sender sent this email to someone else, but I got this email? But how? How it's possible? And why this email wasn't even automatically sent to junk? I'll attach screenshot of it now:

As @VegetableStu mentioned, it's fake. Just by looking at the email. Thank goodness I stopped using free emails and now using my own personal email.
