There is a new e-mail phishing scam circulating that has the potential to easily catch you off guard, especially if you make purchases from the iTunes or Apple stores. It works because if you get this message you’re going to think right away “I didn’t make any Apple Store purchase” and you’ll click on the link to check your order status.
The message looks like one of those innocuous messages you might be familiar with acknowledging a purchase and/or download from the iTunes or Apple stores. It is definitely a scam and should be deleted.
You can always check your iTunes account safely from within the iTunes application and any orders made or not from the Apple Store can be checked by going directly to theApple Store web site.
