Beware of "Apple Order Notification Cancellation" Phishing Scams

Apple customers are asked to be aware of fake "Apple Order Notification" invoices (see below), which claim that they have purchased products or make payments from the iTunes store, and if they did not authorize the purchases or payments they should visit iTunes 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).

Please continue reading below.

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.
