Beware of Apple iTunes App Store Invoice Phishing Emails

Would you share this Article with others?

Apple customers are asked to be aware of fake email invoices (see below) claiming that they have purchased products from Apple's App or iTunes store. The fake email invoices were sent by scammers to frighten and trick the recipients into clicking on the links within them by claiming they need to do so in order to cancel the purchases and get a refund. But, once the recipients click on the link in the fake email invoices, they will be taken to a phishing website that steals personal, financial, and Apple credentials (usernames and passwords).

Therefore, Apple customers who have received email invoices appearing as if they were sent from Apple, 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.

Sample of a Fake Apple Invoice Email Invoice

From: Apple info@appstoreonline.co.uk
Date: 17 August 2016 at 16:20:19 BST
Subject: Your Invoice No.18479101

Dear Customer,

Thank you for buying the following product on 17/08/2016 13:30:23 PM.

Product Name : Minecraft Pocket Edition
Order Number: 18479101
Receipt Date: 17/08/2016 13:30:23 PM
Order Total: 1.17 GBP

If you did not authorize this purchase, please click here for refund.

Recipients of the email voices claiming that they have ordered a product they did not, and who have clicked on the link in them, should change their Apple password and contact Apple Support for help.

Apple users, the best protection against phishing scams is to avoid clicking on links in email messages, social media messages, and text messages to sign into their online accounts.

      HI anon,

      You'll want to update your password for your Apple ID (your iTunes / App store account), as well as the passwords for any other sites / services you use where you are using the same password or a similar password.

      You may also find it beneficial to sign up for an Identity Theft monioring service for the next 6 months - 1 year. These services can alert you if anything odd happens, such as new loans or credit cards being taken out in your name.

      Going forward, always use common sense and caution when interacting with any unexpected emails like this. When looking closely at this scam emails, it's very easy to determine that they are 100% fake:

      - Look at the actual email address the message is being sent from. Notice that this email is not coming from Apple (example: kjddgf341jdfbka@jsbadjhsadb-refundordersbigo.info).

      - Notice that the email is very short, and contains no long legal disclaimer at the bottom of the email.

      - Notice that the Subject line (example: 'Orders confirmation') and body of the email are simple, unprofessional and completely different from an actual Apple order receipt email.

      - Notice that the email does not address you (i.e. 'Dear John,') and does not have a closing (i.e. 'Thank you, Apple App Store').

      - Notice that the attachment on the email (which you should not open or download! If you did, delete it) contains a random and unprofessional file name (example: jdfhjHG13-Invoice.docx)

      - While similar to a real Apple Invoice attachment, notice that this attachment contains no long legal disclaimer.

      Good luck my friend! If you change your passwords immediately and watch all of the financial activity in your name, you should be fine.

    I just received an "invoice" on my computer stating I purchased a Mobile Legends Bang bang sold to Moonton Inc. I called Apple and was told this is phony and not sent by Apple. I am changing my password but whoever sent this had my correct password.

    Another scam. The apple.com/support appears to actually link to that page. But the "iTunes Payment Cancellation Form" links to hxxps://x.co/6n7DF. If you simply scroll over the link in the email you can see what the actual online address is. Clearly, that one is NOT iTunes. (Also, I received the email on 10/7/17 and it says the order date is 10/8/17.)

    The email:

    Given that I have submitted the cancellation agreement, what should I do?

      I made the mistake of filling out the cancellation agreement which asked for my debit card that is saved to my apple account. A couple of days later that debit card information was used and there were two $150 purchases on my bank account for something overseas.

        Contact your bank for help. Have them cancel the transactions and refund your money.

      Change your passwords, before your account is hijacked and use fraudulently. The so-called cancellation link in the fake email goes to a phishing website that steals usernames and passwords.

      The message that you received about an order is a fake, therefore, just ignore it. The message was sent randomly to potential victims by cyber-criminals. The cybcercriminals do not know who has an Apple or not, so they just sent it out to everyone, even persons who do not have an Apple account.

      Change your email account password, since you have followed the instructions in the message.
