"Apple App Store Payment Cancellation" Phishing Scams

Would you share this Article with others?

Apple customers are asked to be aware of fake App Store email invoices (see below), which claim that they have purchased products or make payments from the App Store, and if you did not authorize the purchases or payments they should visit App Store Payment Cancellation. The fake email invoices are being sent by scammers to frighten and trick the recipients into clicking on the links within them by claiming they need to do so in order to cancel the purchases and get a refund. But, once the recipients click on the link in the fake email invoices, they will be taken to a phishing website that steals personal, financial, and Apple credentials (usernames and passwords).

Therefore, Apple customers who have received email invoices appearing as if they were sent from Apple, should avoid clicking on the links in them. They should instead, sign directly into the iTunes Store on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, or Apple TV and check their accounts.
