iTunes phishing problem

Post by simpsca on Thu Feb 19, 2015 1:50 pm

There is an email scam going around. I received an email that I charged two movie rentals to iTunes today and to click on the link if I did not order these movies. I called iTunes and they have had several customers have phishing expeditions. When you click the link to report the inappropriate charge my screen says "this is a phishing expedition". So if you get charged for anything you didn't order from itunes call the customer service number (409) 974-2042. That is a US number.

I just spoke to the rep and there were no charges to any account in my name and they have had the same problem from other customers. Do not click on the link at the bottom of the email.

The good thing with "Apple" is that they get all over this kind of s*it pronto. Your job - report. This kind of stuff has occasionally happened to us, maybe 3x, and they were all over it. You may hate them but they do not want their client base messed with.

Yes I reported it by phone and email - they even have a special email to report it to. Another friend emailed me she received the same fake phishing email.
