Beware of Apple iTunes Store Automatic Renewal Subscription Phishing Emails

Apple iTunes customers are asked to be aware of fake email alerts that claim a subscription for some service or product will be automatically renewed unless it is turned off or cancelled 24 hours before the end of the current period. The fake email alerts were sent by scammers to frighten and trick the recipients into clicking on the links within them, in order to cancel the so-called subscription. But, once the recipients click on the link in the fake email messages, they will be taken to phishing website that steals personal, financial, and Apple iTunes credentials (usernames and passwords).

Therefore, ITunes customers who have received email messages appearing as if they were sent from the iTunes Store Team should avoid clicking on the links in them. They should instead, sign directly into the iTunes Store on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, or Apple TV and check their accounts.
