I have recently bought a new iPad. I’ve had the old one stripped of all my info.

I keep getting emails from App Store stating ‘ payment receipt from Apple’ (in US dollars), different amounts every time. I haven’t bought anything, I’ve checked my bank account (there’s no change)have removed my bank details and changed my Apple password.

Could this be a scam or hack??


The best thing to do is to check your purchase history.

There are some other things that can identify the email:

Genuine emails will contain your billing address:

Genuine purchase receipts—from purchases in the App Store, iTunes Store, iBooks Store, or Apple Music—include your current billing address, which scammers are unlikely to have.

You should report the email to reportphishing@apple.com

If you receive what you believe to be a phishing email that's designed to look like it’s from Apple, please send it to reportphishing@apple.com. 

Importantly don’t open any attachments just in case, change your Apple ID password like you’ve already done and report the email immediately. You can also block the email.
