New Phishing Spam Scam is Fake Apple Store Confirmation

If you find this useful please share it!



 

The newest phishing scam is a fake order confirmation from Apple, exhorting you “To view the most up-to-date status and make changes to your Apple Online Store order, visit online your Order Status.” The “visit online your order status” link actually goes to parksidepta[dot]com/ounces.html. And while it says that it’s from up-to-date @store.apple.com, it’s not really (our version came from dj @accountingsevices.co.nz)

The Apple store scam email reads as below – remember, if you get this email, do not click on any of the links:

  9. Dear Sir
    I have just received ‘Purchase Confirmation?’ from
    It was sent from dsdsadsa@to5email4.gprs.rogers.com

    It was ‘Need for Speed Most Wanted’ for $15.55. If I had not ordered the item it told
    me to cancel the order by clicking on the link below.

    I have not clicked on the link as I think it is a scam.

    A confirmation that it is a scam would be be appreciated.

    Peter.

  10. Just rec’d. an ORDER ACKNOWLEDGMENT #W157077 addressed to above for $922.58. Obviously, we were to be enticed to open the attached PDF invoice. Yeah, right! Fortunately, my assistant open it and was very leary, as we have NO “I” anything! Have a cell 9 years of age and that’s it! Even had a registration code: OK6Z=Z19S-95HC-PINO-3940. Familiar to anyone???? Of course NOT. Called Discover Business cards, they having no record of the sort! She said DELETE IT NOW, so we did.

    So sad these clowns cannot put their PC phishing talents to help non-profits like our event. SAD — hope they get captured and pay damages to those folks that DID open the attachments–hope it wasn’t a complete disaster.

  11. I have received 3 different cancellation orders(Different numbers) so far. Thanks for the warning.

  12. Thanks so much for that post, I recived an email just like that, except it said my order was canceled. I was confused because I didn’t order anything! But the rest of the message was just like that, Thanks!
