WARNING: Don't Open This Particular 'E-mail' From Apple. Find Out Why!

There's been a hoax message circulating around the world of Apple's iPhone user, and it can be very tricky to spot at first. Scammers have gotten really smart and witty in their approach to deceive unwary users and make them fall for their traps.

Their latest attempt is in the form of an e-mail scam and it claims to be from the company over at Cupertino, but experts caution iPhone users out there to never open the message, and here's why.

The trick is to deceive iTunes subscribers and steal your personal information. Since the message strongly resembles a legit message from Apple, it can be quite convincing at first. Twitter user FloLamps posted a screenshot of the scam message to let everyone be aware.

It convinces you to believe that you have purchased a Lil Kesh song titled 'For You' for a ridiculous amount of £23.34 (about roughly $31). The natural response to this would be to click the 'Cancel and Manage Subscription' link found at the last part of the e-mail.

But alas, clicking the link will redirect you to a fraudulent page. Another Twitter user also got caught by the e-mail scam and shared his experience.

Apple has given a warning to make all of iPhone users aware about the whole e-mail scam. Their website states that they do not collect any personal information. If you receive an e-mail like this, make sure to delete it immediately.

Apple says:

"The iTunes Store will never ask you to provide personal information or sensitive account information (such as passwords or credit card numbers) via e-mail.

Email messages that contain attachments or links to non-Apple websites are from sources other than Apple, although they may appear to be from the iTunes Store.

Most often, these are malicious and should not be opened.

You should never enter your Apple account information on any non-Apple website."
