"Apple Suspicious Attempt Of Purchase Detected On Your Account" Phishing Scam

Apple Suspicious Attempt Of Purchase Detected On Your Account Phishing Scam

The email message below, which claims a suspicious attempt of purchase has been detected on the recipients' Apple account, is another attempt by cybercriminals to steal their potential victims’ Apple account credentials. The fake email has links in it that go to the phishing Apple website, which steals account usernames and password. The phishing website steals account credentials by asking visitors to sign-in with their Apple account usernames and passwords. Now, any attempt to sign into the fake or phishing website will result in the visitors’ Apple account credentials being sent to the cybercriminals responsible for the scam. Once the cyber crooks have gotten possession of the stolen account credentials, they will use it to hijack their victims’ Apple accounts and use the same accounts fraudulently.

If there is something wrong with their accounts, they will be alerted after signing in. Users who were tricked by the phishing scam, are asked to change their Apple account passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.

    I have got this mail... just that in a spanish form...

    Honestly I thought from the beginning that it was fake, but I wasn't sure, so I downloaded the PDF and click on the Verify your account button and then: Chrome ended up the connection, it said it was very dangerous, and so on...

    So... I can confirm it's a fake!


    Greetings! :)
