It Pays to Be Suspicious

I received this email yesterday, which looked official but didn’t make sense. I didn’t make the purchases and it wasn’t my address or credit card.

I checked the sender, which didn’t look right, and did not click on any of the links. Just in case I phoned Apple and the fellow said it was indeed a phishing attempt. So I marked it as spam and deleted it.

It pays to be suspicious.

    the problem is even opening the email sometimes can do damage.
    it’s how I got hacked the first time. just by opening the email.
    now if I don’t know the sender or if it’s not a subscribed site I just don’t open it. I have become paranoid that way!

      This one looked as if it came from Apple. I had just bought the Dark Sky app so it seemed reasonable until I saw the receipt. The scammer was good.

  3. They are crafty, but thankfully did not catch you in their web! In the case of unsolicited emails, it really does pay to be suspicious!

    Yes, it does indeed pay to be suspicious. I would have done exactly what you did, had I received a similar mail.
