There are new scams out there every day where people that should be in jail end up trying to steal your money and financial information. One of the most common that has happened to most is where someone calls your house or cell phone saying that your Dell/HP/Apple etc computer reported that it had a breach or something like that. Anyway, they have gotten a little more careful because they have called far too many people that don't have the computer brand that they claim called into them.
The link above identifies 11 different scams that have to do with Apple in various ways and I have had at least two of them happen to me. The fake invoice from the iTunes store is one of the most common and works for the crooks because people click on the cancel link which sends you to a phishing site to capture and steal your financial information. There are some really good and convincing scams out there and thankfully most people are very cautious and suspect a scam but far too many innocent people get duped each day and unfortunately a lot of them are elderly.
These people are no better than the charlatans, the fake evangelist, that are on the TV seeking to bilk people out of their life's savings, in the name of some Ministry for God. It's too bad that most of these people prosper from their evil deeds and don't end up suffering or going to jail due to it but I guess that's the way of the internet where people can easily hide behind a keyboard and screen and appear legit.
