Phishing Scam

Apple warns customers to watch out for a new wave of App Store phishing emails. If you receive an email supposedly from the Apple AppStore saying you subscribed to YouTube Red — a video streaming service— and, of course, you never signed up for said app, beware. It’s a scam! I just received not one but two emails, but being alert, I went online to check out who the company was and if there was a scam going on. And yes, go check it out and be warned! You can read all of Apple’s tips on its website here. The company encourages users who have received a suspicious email to forward it to: reportphishing@apple.com.

Poor Facebook … still want to hangout and share everything?
