Beware of iTunes Netflix Email Receipt Scams Sent by Cybercriminals

Cybercriminals are sending out fake iTunes Netflix email receipts like the one below to potential victims. The fake email receipts are an attempt to trick and frighten the recipients into clicking on a link in the same email receipts that goes to a phishing website that steals iTunes credentials, personal and financial information.

Please continue reading below.

Therefore, online users who have received the same email messages are asked to delete them and not follow the instructions in them. iTunes users are advised to always sign directly into the iTunes Store on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, or Apple TV, instead of clicking on a link in an email message, and check their accounts. This will prevent them from becoming victims of phishing scams.

Also, Apple users can further protect themselves from phishing scams by enabling Two-factor authentication, which is an extra layer of security for their Apple ID, designed to ensure that they are the only one who can access their accounts, even if someone knows their passwords.

    I clicked on the link but didn't answer any questions. I have since changed my itunes password. Did clicking on the link install malware on my computer?

      Just clicking will not install malware on your computer. You would have to install or open the malware file.
