Apple customers, beware of fake invoices like the one below, which claim that you have made an order or a payment from the iTunes store, and if you have an issue with the payment or you want a refund, you should click on a link in the same email to receive your refund. 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 order 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).
