Beware of “Apple Security Breach iOS Crash” Scams - Do Not Call 1-844-837-6178

Apple users who have received messages like the one below claiming that their Apple iOS security has been breached and crashed are asked to delete them. This is because the messages are fakes and the number (1-844-837-6178) the messages ask the recipients to call is a fake Apple Support number. Therefore, Apple users are asked not to call the number and should not follow the instructions in the messages.

Please continue below.

    I have had 3 messages in an email that my security has been breached & I called Apple & they told me to buy 3 $50 iTunes cards to correct the problem & call back. Can you tell me if this is legitimate or a scam? HELP I have to return the card numbers by 12:00 am today to fix.

      of course it is SCAMMERS!!! I got the same problem today and almost believed them until they asked me to enter my credit card number in my Apple account where I gave them the access via remote connection agent (stupid me!), then I realized they are the SCAMMERS!!!

      It is a scam. The number you called doesn't belong to Apple, and Apple will never ask you to buy iTunes cards and provide the numbers to them. So, if you are asked to do so, it is a cybercriminal attempting to scam you.

    I received a call from 1-844-383-4621 regarding a security breach. Live voice responded stating that someone overseas attempted to log in with my Apple account information. However, I never divulged my name nor did I give any account information.

    I got a pop up that said Apple Security Breach. Call 1-855-866-7690. They wanted to sell me software to prevent a crash. I had already given them my name and phone number but I immediately hung up. I felt that it was a scam.

    I was called but did not call the 844 number. I called the originating telephone number. It is a recorded message purportedly from Apple. Store apologizing for being used by the scam. This message claims the phishers are using the stores record and suggests contacting Apple directly.
