Although, the email message appears as if it came from Apple, it was not. So, ensure that you never click on a link in an email message to sign into your Apple account.

Clicking on the link in this email message will take you to the fake or phishing Apple website ammadesign .ru.

This website will ask the victim to sign in with your Apple account user id and password. Now, if you enter and submit this information, it will be sent to the scammers or cybercriminals behind this phishing scam. With your Apple user id and password, these cybercriminals will be able to gain access to your account.

After the user id and password are submitted by the victim, her/she will be taken to another web page.

    I received a receipt from Apple with a copy of an invoice for a purchase I didn't make. Went to Itunes, logged into my account, and it showed no purchases had been made, so apparently, this is a scam. Was afraid someone had hacked my account.

    I received a receipt for an 'In App Purchase' for Sing! Karaoke by Smule, VIP All Access Pass (Automatic Renewal).
    I didn't order this. The email looked legit and I actually clicked on one of the links. Hopefully I didn't give them my log-in details.
