Our continual vigilance is required to double-check all of our transactions with our favorite internet vendors.
There is a new exploit going around that attempts to steal your Apple ID credentials. The email states, “If you did not order the above products and suspect your account has been hijacked kindly visit the link below.” The displayed link will look like www.order.itunes.com/verify/cancel but will not take you to a matching URL.
As always we encourage people to LOOK CAREFULLY at the directed URL in the top of their browser, as in this case, it’s clear that this is bogus as the domain name you land on is: paypal-communications.com.
Just close and go away!
