Beware of "Apple Thanks for Your Purchase" Phishing Scams

The fake emails are being sent by cyber criminals to trick potential victims into visiting a phishing website that steals credit card information, online account credentials or personal information. The potential victims may also be asked to visit malicious websites that will infect their computers or mobile devices with viruses, ransomware, spyware or other malware.
