Summer Pierson Apple ID Scam - Beware

Advertisement

Apple customers are asked to be aware of fake Summer Pierson on the App Store invoices (see below) claiming that they 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.

    I clicked on the link but got an alert stating it was a scam so it didn't take me any further. Since I didn't put in any personal information then I should be good right?

  • December 14, 2020 at 2:08 PM by an anonymous user from: Mattydale, Salina, New York, United States

    Happened to me, I called APPLE directly instead of clicking on anything.

    got the same Summer Pierson scam today. My computer had filed it under junk mail, so it is smarter than me! I did open the attachment, but none of the links worked, thank God. Checked with Pay Pal, Apple Store and there was nothing there.

    This s**t is happening more and more. The USA has numerous law enforcement agencies, let's have another one who figures this out and penalizes these ppl.

    This person tried to use my PayPal account for an Apple "order" dated Nov. 19, 2020. Fortunately PayPal didn't pay.

    I received the same email from Apple regarding the purchase of a game costing $99.99. And the person on it was Summer Pierson in Chandler AZ. It was saying to click on PayPal or something like that. But it also had “click here” if you did not order this. Sooooo, I clicked on it and it came up with “server not found.” I hope I didn’t make a mistake in clicking on that. I knew it was fake when I saw this email because I didn’t order anything. These things p**s me off.

    • November 23, 2020 at 12:38 PM by an anonymous user from: Los Angeles, California, United States

      Ugh I did the same thing. I had to contact apple right away. Did anything else happened to your accounts?

  • April 24, 2020 at 1:09 PM by an anonymous user from: Arlington, Texas, United States

    Red flags were everywhere in that fake email! Thank goodness I was able to find this page forum! Gotta give it to them. It looks pretty real. I was so worried my profile had been compromised. I did not click on anything but I did preview the receipt. I still changed my Apple ID login and password directly from apple's website just in case. When looking up my orders, this was nowhere to be found, not even with the order number included in the email.

    The apple address in the email is wrong (located in Sydney Australia), the attachment did not display my Apple ID, so this was obviously being sent around without having to include my info to prove it was my purchase, AND WHO TF IS SUMMER PIERSON? LOL So, nice try.. but I'm not falling for it!

    I clicked on it, but just took a picture of it. What does that mean for my accounts?

    • March 26, 2020 at 6:29 PM by info

      Once you didn't attempt to sign-in, your account is OK.

  • February 13, 2020 at 12:08 PM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    What do I do if I clicked on the notice and gave a bunch of info including credit card info?

    • February 13, 2020 at 6:32 PM by info

      Contact your bank for help. You may need to cancel the card and get a new one.

  • February 3, 2020 at 3:17 PM by an anonymous user from: New York, United States

    I opened the fake receipt but didn’t go any further than that- so there’s nothing to worry about since I didn’t go anywhere or give any information?

    • January 14, 2020 at 10:56 AM by info

      Once you didn't click the link and enter your account credentials, or send money as instructed, you are ok.

  • December 20, 2019 at 12:59 PM by an anonymous user from: Cheyenne Wells, Colorado, United States

    Yes, I clicked on the receipt and was stupid enough to give them my info. Now what?

    • December 31, 2019 at 6:45 PM by an anonymous user from: Chino, California, United States

      security freeze you social security number with all credit agencies,

      change apple id password and make it super strong included numbers, upper case, lower case letters and symbols.

    • December 20, 2019 at 2:02 PM by info

      Change your password and be careful going forward because the scammers will contact you and attempt to scam you using the information you have sent.

  • December 18, 2019 at 10:28 AM by an anonymous user from: Morrow, Arkansas, United States

    Im so sick and tired of c**p like this. You don’t know who to trust anymore. More must be done to protect consumers

  • December 10, 2019 at 5:09 PM by an anonymous user from: Clermont, Florida, United States

    I clicked the link before realizing it's a scam. What should I do now?

    • December 10, 2019 at 6:07 PM by info
