Just wanted to warn some of you guys here ...

Hello!

You have received an iTunes Gift Certificate in the amount of $50.00 You can find your certificate code in attachment below.

Then you need to open iTunes. Once you verify your account, $50.00 will be credited to your account, so you can start buying music, games, video right away.


iTunes Store.

The email which I just received has trojans so please beware.

Hope this helps!

    I just got this one, too. One clue to watch for with this kind of spam (the kind where you think it's from the actual company) is grammar, spelling, and punctuation issues. The real iTunes would no doubt proofread their e-mails. :rolleyes:

    Actually, the main warning red flag should be the reference to anything sent in "attachment"...

    I wouldn't rely on the correct grammar of any company, they are as bad as anybody else but at least they won't send you attachments

    Everything with "see attachment" is a scam unless you paid for something or is from a list you are on.

    It boggles my mind why people open emails which they were not expecting such as the one above and then wonder why their computers get hacked and so on.
