Fake Apple email receipts

Posted: Thu 16 May 2019, 12:11pm.

Look out for fake emails with the subject line: Your Apple receipt No 8561288-81816

These emails appear to be receipts for purchases from Apple, usually movies. At the bottom of the email there is a link to get a refund. If you follow this link, you’ll be taken to a fake website that will try to steal your personal or financial details.

Do not follow the link in these emails. They are a type of phishing attack.

If you think you might have given away your Apple login details, change them immediately using these instructions: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201355
