Warn consumers about iPhone email frauds

Consumers Warning about Widespread iPhone fraud. Scammers are sending emails claiming that they have received money for an iPhone they did not order. The email may even appear valid and say, “Isn’t this a purchase?” “If you believe you are receiving this communication incorrectly, please contact us immediately.” When the victim dials the number, they are linked to a scammer who appears as a customer service representative who says he can resolve the case.

The scammer asks for credit card or banking information to “cancel” the sale, even though people do not see a charge on their account. The scammer said he should act quickly before the charge passed. Scammers also told victims that their accounts had been hacked. In these cases, the scammer asks for a credit card or bank information, stating that they need him to cancel the sale. How to avoid phishing scams.

The BBB says to double check the email address of the sender. Personal emails are always designed to look like they come from a legitimate source like your bank or Amazon, but look closely at the sender email to see if it is actually from an official source. Next, the BBB said it should check its bank for charges. If you receive an email stating that you have purchased, check your bank or credit card account. If there is no charge, it is possible to scam. Do not contact scammers. Instead, delete your email and block the sender.

Do not click on suspicious links. The BBB says it is best not to click on links in emails received from anonymous senders. These links can download malware to your computer or mobile device, making it vulnerable to identity theft.
