    I just came across this sitting in Ginny's email junk mail. Nothing she's done and now she's in a panic. Goodness knows who Barbara's iPhone is?

    She has no apple account as such, no cards registered.

    I've just compared it to one of my genuine apple invoices and it looks similar but not the same.
    I think it's just spam to ignore...am I right or wrong?

    intouch with tour credit/ debit cards
    just to make sure

    google apple or use the below if you trust me
    contact apple /tel:+44-800-107-6285

    just to be sure
    i believe some scammers try a small purchase first then a big ONE.

    Spam - don't click on any of the links, that'll only confirm the email address is real & live ensuring it'll be sold on & you'll get more spam & scams.

    I think I've sussed it.

    They want you to panic and the 'cancel and manage subscriptions' takes you to a bogus log in screen that looks remarkably like the real thing! If you do log in....they have your details!

    Bin it. If money comes off your account, then simply reclaim it

    Don't click on links to sign in to any site
