Apple explains how to differentiate your emails from emails-scam

Internet scams are the order of the day, they acquire increasingly sophisticated forms and the picaresque tries to do the impossible so that you have a scare in your current account or can trade with your sensitive data.

The technique of phishing is to simulate a trusted website or an email from a major company, or even a bank or financial entity , and with the excuse of either restoring some passwords or changing some data, request information that is used to make charges.

Aware of the seriousness of this type of scams , Apple has developed a simple guide in which you can identify those emails you receive and in which you request that you urgently review a series of data. In particular, this guide refers to how to avoid scams that are discussed in the iTunes store.

Apple warns that this type of emails request data that Apple never asks for , such as the number and CCV of the credit card, the number of social security affiliations or maternal surnames. Not only with Apple, but with any company, completely distrust who in an email asks for your credit card number.

Phishers use increasingly complex techniques, imitating perfectly some websites and thus gain the trust of the victim, asking him to update some of his account information for security.

And in the case of iTunes scams, all Apple changes are applied through the same app, never ever by a web browser , as scammers usually do. Therefore, the best thing you can do if you receive an email of this type is to take it directly to the wastebasket and ignore it.
