A warning about a new iPhone scam has been issued

The Best Business Center has issued a warning about the new pyramid targeting iPhones. According to Best Buy, new emails, phone emails that appear as certificates for the new iPhone are received. The victim is notified via email or voicemail that they have purchased an iPhone and that their Amazon account, bank account, or credit card will be charged.

Victims will then call the assigned customer service number to try and change the charge. Some scammers say, “If you feel you are receiving this message incorrectly, contact us immediately.” Dennis Horton, director of the Rockford Regional Office of Excellence Business, said that if you receive an email, do not respond. “This self-deception seems like a real mistake, but it is not,” Horton said. “Fraudsters hope you will be afraid to contact them to correct the ‘mistake’.”

The BBB said a customer reported the scam, claiming the scammer told them the purchase would not appear in their account records for 24 hours, prompting the need for immediate action. The dispatcher is said to have asked the customer to submit an application for the refund. When the user refuses, the destroyer connects the phone. In some cases, scammers tell victims they have hacked their accounts, asking for credit card or bank information.

The BBB says that if you receive one of these messages, do not dial a number in an email or voicemail, stating that it is important to call a known number for your bank, credit card company, or Amazon directly. Check the email address twice if the message has been received. Scammers can make emails look like the right message from a reputable source. Also, check your bank for charges first. The BBB said that if the charges against it were not there, it could be a scam.

The BBB also recommends not clicking on suspicious links, saying they may download malware to your computer or mobile device, making it vulnerable to identity theft. If you find a scam or think you are a victim, report it to the BBB on their website.
