Beware of "Apple Invoice Review Your Order History from Other Device" Phishing Scam

The email message below which claims that Two-factor authentication has been activated on the recipients' Apple accounts is another attempt by cybercriminals to steal their potential victims’ Apple account credentials. The fake email, which also claims that the recipients' Apple ID has been locked for security reasons, has links in it that go to a 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.

Apple users should never click on a link in an email message to sign into their accounts. They should instead, go directly to https://appleid.apple.com/ and sign-in from there. 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. For those users who are unable to change their passwords, are asked to contact Apple Technical Support for help.
