New Apple ID Scam Mails
On the morning of December 1st 2015, got a legitimate email receipt from Apple for the electronic daily newspaper I subscribe to. So far, all is good, At the same time, got an email from Apple stating that my Apple ID had been recently used to purchase al album by One Direction (not quite my taste in music). The email reads as follows:
"Dear Customer, Your Apple ID was used to purchase "Four" Album by One Direction ($ 4,49 ) from iTunes Store on a device that had not previously been associated with you.
If you initiated this purchase, you can disregard this email.
If you did not initiate this purchase, please go to http:/apple.com/support/cancel-165463891 to cancel the transaction and to confirm that you are the owner of the account .
Now I usually stir away quite easily at scams but this one almost got me and I almost clicked on the live link simply because the end of the first sentence is sometimes stated by Apple and it popped into my inbox at the same time as that other legitimate mail. So beware.
