Another Apple iTunes scam

Got a very realistic email today thanking me for my purchase of a game on iTunes for $49. The message has a small "cancel" button to stop the purchase if it was made in error. Fortunately I do not have a credit card associated with my iTunes account.

To be clear, iTunes isn't attempting to scam you. Let me guess, it came from applesupport@klhj.apple.ldhhkjdsf.com?

Yes it was a long cryptic address, definitely not associated with Apple or iTunes. I just wanted to show the relative good quality of their fake receipt, generated to get my Id and password. Lots of asswipes out there!

Yeah, what a miserable existence to be in "that line of work."

Tomorrow's email at mega-scam:

Per Go-NoGo's memo, the message must be adjusted.
Please do the needful!
