We guess the scammers want your Billing Information. What do you think?
Do you honestly think Apple will repeat themselves over and over again like this? If this really came from Apple they would have been more specific and to the point. It is the age old rule of e-mail security, no organisation will ever send you an e-mail to update your billing information.
Bummer, go buy yourself an ice cream toaster!
It is clear this e-mail did not come from Apple, but some retarded Phishing scammer.
The links at the bottom of the original e-mail pointed to apple.com. This is done to add a false sense of security, to make you think it actually came from Apple. The fact that some links point to the actual website of the company, does not mean that the e-mail is legitimate. Focus on the link they want you to click on and make sure that specific one is legitimate before clicking it, don't be distracted by the other links, they are only decoys.
