A repetitive Phishing Scam: Apple ID

Your Apple ID was just used to purchase TuneIn Radio Pro $3.99 Your receipt No.226816512

Your Apple ID was just used to purchase TuneIn Radio Pro from the App Store on a computer or device that had not previously been associated with that Apple ID. You may also be receiving this email if you reset your password since your last purchase.

This purchase was initiated from Spain.

If you made this purchase, you can disregard this email. It was only sent to alert you in case you did not make the purchase yourself.

If you did not make this purchase, we recommend that you go to iforgot.apple.com to change your password, then see Apple ID: Tips for protecting the security of your account for further assistance.

Apple

Naturally, this message is not from Apple. iforgot.apple.com is a valid Apple page, but the link redirected to a bogus site which was almost instantly deleted, and would have gathered your personal and financial data.

I’ve seen this one appear several times in my email box, so it’s an active fraud; please be careful out there.

The Old Wolf has spoken.
