It seems every every time you turn around, we’re being warned of another online or phone scam. The Better Business Bureau is warning of a scam involving a bogus receipt for an iPhone you didn’t buy.


Here’s how it works. You receive an email with a receipt for $999.00 for an iPhone purchase. The message continues to say your credit card or Amazon account will be billed for the purchase. Then, it asks if this was really you. You’re encouraged to call a “customer service” number is it wasn’t. That’s where they get you. The friendly representative asks for your bank or credit card information. DON’T GIVE IT!

They’ll tell you the charge won’t show for 24 hours, so you need to cancel now. Don’t fall for it.
