Apple Store Discount card Phishing Scam

Spam messages have been sent by cybercriminals laying claim to reward loyal Apple customers with AU$100 (just over US $100) of credit to spend in-store if they just buy a AU$9 discount card.

The e-mail also contains an attachment.

The attachment contains a form that asks for everything from date of birth to credit information.  The form goes on to ask for your credit card details – including your security code, what password you use for Verified by Visa / Mastercard SecureCode and even asks what your credit limit is.

The message body of the email reads as follows:

Dear Apple Customer,

Apple is rewarding its long-term customers. Your loyalty for our products made you eligible for buying an Apple Discount Card. With this only 9 AU$ Discount Card you will have 100 AU$ credit at any Australian Apple Store or on http://www.apple.com/au/ .

To acquire your Apple Discount Card please download and complete the attached form.

100 AU$ Credit Bonus

( You will receive your Apple Discount Card via e-mail in the following 24 hours after your payment has been made.)

Attached to the emails is a file called:

Apple Discount - Complete this form to get your discount.html

Don’t be fooled by nicely written and presented e-mails.  Most companies will never ask you for such personal information over E-mail.
