Watch out for iTunes receipt scam this Valentine's Day
With the galactic success of iTunes in no doubt, it was only a matter of time before the spam-meisters got involved and tried their luck. With tens of millions accounts worldwide, a scattershot approach through bulk spamming will reach an intended target plenty of times over.
Webuser reports that security researchers have seen an email being spammed out in high volumes, posing as an iTunes receipt. In fact it's a scam to persuade you to buy medications and Valentine's Day gifts. You know what kind of medications.
There's no malware attached to the email; it simply redirects users through to third party sites. Having said that, anybody buying a Valentine's Day gift from an online pharmacy is probably in a doomed relationship anyway, so maybe it's for the best.
