    Added information below: Note the poor spelling of English.

    What these people want you to do is follow their directions in the downloaded PDF receipt, telling you if you did not order this item click on this (iTunes Payment Cancelation Form and follow the steps.)
    If you do this it would take you to a non secure online address giving them your information or allowing them to get inside your computer.

    I don't think it would be a good idea you really never know what it might do and later, you again might use it or someone else might buy it from you and cause them a lot of trouble.
    These people are going to a lot of trouble trying to gain inroads to peoples systems.

    iMac, i7 4GHz, 32GB memory, 1TB Blade, OS X.14.2 Mojave,
    Now that would be most unwise macgig. Never give these criminals a chance.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    its on an old imac running el capitan. the hard drives been wiped, and I don't log into any websites on that mac. I dont enter any information on that mac. it's my experimental machine. if they gained access theirs no personal information for them to get. I use it to check out the live phishing links at https://openphish.com/

    its good to know what these phishing sites look like. some of them look very real. they could fool anyone even someone like me that have used macs for years. some of them look like real apple sites.

    Not long ago i was working with Apples support because i had received an e-mail that really looked like from Apples web site, and because i clicked on it and then noticed some differences i called Apple and they said it would be best if i candled my credit card used in iTune store and also i needed a new Apple password, this really caused me a lot of work contacting all the people using my old credit card and getting my Apple password changed.

    This phishing attack happened after the above, i don't feel it had anything to do with it just happened at this time.

    I‘ve gotten many of those. Forward them to Apple and forget about them.

    I wonder if apple really does anything with them, or is it just something to make us feel they do.

    Does it really matter? If you don't feel they do anything, then why send it to them?

    Wondering is wondering nothing else, if Apple would post something telling us that our sending the reports of Phishing, was really helping them in making our Apple products safer for us i would feel better.

    Buy some stocks, they have more communication with their owners.
