“Apple customers are being targeted in a series of new scams involving invoices containing fake iTunes, App Store or Netflix purchases,” This is Money reports.
“The bogus emails – likely to have been sent to thousands of people – are aimed at stealing your bank details by making people think someone has gone shopping using your Apple account,” This is Money reports. “The invoices seen by MailOnline and all headed with the Apple logo and using its distinctive font, say the user has bought music on iTunes or purchased a new annual Netflix subscription.”
This is Money reports, “Police have also been sharing images of the Netflix email on Twitter to warn people not to be duped.”
