The scammers are trying a new way to trick people into stealing Apple's login information.

The phishing email appears to be from Spotify and says that the user has purchased the one-year premium subscription for $ 150.99 (£ 115).

A hyperlink in the email is labeled "check your subscription" and takes the user to an official looking site with Apple logos.

This fake site is designed to trick people into sending their Apple username and password, which is sent directly to hackers.

This information can give them unlimited access to Apple Pay, photos, videos and personal information.

The iPhone scam was highlighted on Reddit and the discoverer said: I saw this email today, I thought the sender looked suspicious, so I went to see if I had bought a year of Spotify Premium.

"I was drinking last night, so I had a slight panic and clicked on the link.

"But when I saw the Apple page with a random address, I immediately knew it was a scam."

Tim Sadler, CEO of security firm Tessian, told The Sun: "This is an example of a classic phishing scam.

"Phishing emails, such as spam, are of a massive nature, but often look for the credentials of a user imitating the identity of a reliable website or service, in this case, Apple and Spotify.

& # 39; Like spam, phishing does not discriminate. Anyone, individual or business, can be easily attacked and cheated. "

The email and the subsequent website are well designed and have an official look, but there are some key points that reveal the configuration as a farce.

Careful observation of the messages and the site is crucial to detect any fraudulent email and can help avoid common pitfalls.

The confusion between the brands Apple and Spotify, for example, is an indicator that email is a hoax and no HTTPS is also a gift.

If users fall into the trap and give their details to the schemers, they could give them full control of their account.

Here you will find personal information, access to iCloud, photos, videos and even the possibility of fraudulent purchases.
