BBB warns of fake Apple emails

Reports from all across the country show consumers are receiving emails falsely identifying as Apple. On their website, Apple states these are fraudulent phishing emails attempting to get personal information and warns consumers to not click or respond. Apple advises that their emails will contain apple.com in the sender’s email address (with the exception being iCloud.com).

The iTunes Store will never ask you to provide via email:

• Social Security Number

• Mother’s maiden name

• Full credit card number

• Credit card CCV code
