Question: Email Scam... Has anyone else received this?

User uploaded file


I assume this to be some sort of scam, but given that outside of iTunes (don't kill me!), I am generally not an Apple user, I thought it best to ask.

It's a phishing email - you could forward it to Apple : reportphishing@apple.com , and then delete it.

Excellent, and thank you for the very quick responses! Like I said, I'm kind of an Apple amateur & wanted to be sure! At least I didn't cave in to curiosity and open the PDF

You may be a new user but you did the right thing by asking here. This is what I usually write in these circumstances.


A genuine message from Apple will always address you by your name or the name they know you by … and come from an address that ends @apple.com.


Never respond to a mail that does not meet both of the conditions above or indeed, that you feel suspicious about.


Send a copy of the email (as an attachment) to Apple at …. Reportphishing@apple.com
