Apple Phishing Scam – One Click Activation.

If you own an Apple device, you’ve probably already received strange emails confirming your purchase to a product or application that your pretty sure you didn’t buy. The email contains a pdf file of the receipt, and most unsuspecting Apple users may click on it expecting to find out what purchase has been made, unaware of the dangers they may have released onto their devices.

Upon opening, there’s only a subject line a pdf file, and the aim of this is to make the unsuspecting user think that they may have purchased a product or app online. The subject line mentions that your order has been confirmed. In my case, it’s in a different language and I KNOW that I haven’t ordered anything as I’m using an Android device and I haven’t used an Apple device since 2015. As I order more from eBay and Wish the order confirmations/receipts are more descriptive without having to click on any links to make sure. It’s only clear and simple. But this email makes you click on the link as there’s nothing here to tell you to do so, most Apple users are happy with the whole idea of “If it says apple, it must be true.” But thats not always the case. Clicking on the pdf only shows a visual receipt that may say it’s Apple complete with the logo with a bunch of clickable links sprawled through out the page. If you know you haven’t purchased anything, forget about using the link under the contact as it will redirect you to a clone log in site for itunes. Scammers use clone Log in pages as a way of Phishing for private details for fraudulent uses. If you sign in to your account from this redirected page, it will ask you to update your personal details:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address And more.

These cloned sites are only one example of many ways these guys can get access to our details just by hoping were really as gullible as they think. Dont click on any suspicious links and if any email seems even a little off, contact the original recipient via personal or official websites or email. Many websites are coming together to fight this as the further we get to exposing scammers, the more smarter tricks they pull.
