Cybercriminals are sending out fake Apple invoices like the one below to potential victims, in an attempt to trick them into clicking on the link in it. The link goes to a fake Apple website where visitors will be asked to sign-in. But, any attempt to sign-in will result in the visitors' Apple username and passwords being sent to the cybercriminals behind the fake invoices.

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.
