The Internet Patrol has been alerted to a new email scam which appears to be an invoice from Apple. Of course, they don’t expect you to pay it, they expect you to be alarmed at the supposed charge, so that you log in to your Apple account, and they can steal your credentials. Don’t fall for it.
The email appears to come from “appleld.com” or “appleid.com”, and has a link for you to “cancel your order”. Of course the link goes to the page where they will steal your Apple username and password.
While many people will realize that this is a scam, the bad guys are counting on at least a few people falling for it. And all it takes is a few.
So, if you get the below email, delete it – do not follow the link, which actually goes to http://www.qitmall.com/Apple-Login-Data, not Apple.
