Fake Itunes and Netflix E-mails

We have received a number of reports from Scottish Borders residents regarding bogus emails, purporting to be from Itunes, indicating that a £35 subscription to Netflix has been mistakenly debited from your account..

This is a “phishing” scam where if a link in the email is followed you will be taken to a fake website and required to input your account and card details.

Always be wary of emails of this nature and NEVER click on links in emails as this can take you to fake websites or activate hidden computer viruses.
