There is a Apple Payment Scam making the rounds again.
The email reads:
While the email sounds simple enough – Confirm an Order, it is when you open the Word Document (Please Never Open Attachments, CPKN Computers are Professionals and can deal with Malicious Files) that you see a different story unfold:
The Document claims your Apple Account has been used on a New Device and a Order has been placed. You can tell by the read that its kind of already telling you that this is not correct and to cancel. It has nothing in the Email or Document on how to “Confirm” the order, just about Cancelling.
The IP Address mentioned in the Example Email says the Purchase was in Venezuela, however, after doing an IP Trace, it comes back to the United States. Very inconsistent attempt.
The Cancel link is to a Secured (HTTPS) Web Address named “ru.sa/…” (Full Address hidden for Safety), which if you search for it, it matches what appears to be a URL Shortener Site or Link.
This URL is flagged as bad.
Where will this URL take you? most likely a Ransomware or Malware Download to try and scam you for Money or take Data.
The other interesting thing is, the Sender sent it To “email@example.com”, and Bcc’d their victims.
