Apple ID Scam Emails Sent by Cybercriminals

Cybercriminals are sending out Apple ID scam emails claiming that the recipients have purchased products from Apple's App or iTunes store. The fake email invoices were 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.
