A new phishing scam is making the rounds, trying to get your Apple ID. The newest attack tricks you by sending you an email telling you have that you have subscribed to a Spotify Premium account. The email looks exactly like the ones that Apple sends you on confirmation of subscriptions. In this phishing email however, the link to check on your subscription however, is not Apple’s site. It is a phishing site which gets your Apple ID credentials.
Readers are advised to not click any links on any emails that you are not expecting. Phishing scams like this one are rampant and Apple is not immune to them just like every other company out there.
If you get an email indicating you have signed up for a Spotify Premium subscription for $150.99, this is the email in question. Do not click on the link in the email. Instead, if you want to double-check your subscriptions, go to the App Store on your iPhone and tap your Avatar at the top of the page. You can then scroll down and see your subscriptions under the Subscriptions option.
As a safety reminder, treat any email you are not expecting, particularly one where you’ve been told that a charge has been made against your credit card, with suspicion. This is one of the most popular phishing scams out there and it is efficient. It is always recommended that you go directly to your credit card’s website or the service in question site to verify details and not use any links in the email itself.
