The email message below with the subject: "Your Apple ID has been used to buy 'black gold'," which appears as if it came from Apple, claiming that the recipients' Apple IDs were used to purchase "black gold," is a phishing scam. The fake/phishing email message is being sent by cyber-criminals to steal the recipients' Apple account IDs, passwords, and credit card information. The link in the fake email message goes to phishing website disguised as Apple's genuine website. On the fake website, potential victims will be asked to sign into their Apple accounts, re-enter their credit card information, and other personal information that the cyber-criminals need in order to hijack their Apple's accounts and use their credit cards fraudulently.
Victims of the Apple phishing scams should change their passwords immediately, and let their banks know that they have used their credit cards on a phishing website. Now, victims of the phishing email message, who are unable to change their passwords because their accounts have been hijacked by cyber-criminals, should contact Apple for help.
