It’s the most wonderful time of the year! For scammers, spammers and phishers of men, Christmas is a target-rich environment and a fresh iTunes phishing email is making the rounds — don’t be a victim.

My friend Kia at MacJunky — he’s the go-to guy for Mac support in Amsterdam — spotted the above iTunes phishing email in his inbox this morning and was quick to sound the alarm.

Dear client,

We inform you that your iTunes ID happens to expire in less than 12 H.

It is imperative to conduct an audit of your information is present, otherwise your ID will be destroyed.

Just click the link below and log in with your iTunes ID and password.

“There is a new [iTunes] phishing scheme doing the rounds and I just got a few in my inbox,” writes Kia. “Please do not click any link within the email, delete it immediately.”

Good advice — trash it immediately and, whatever you do, don’t click any of the link. And, of course, be sure to spread the word about this iTunes phishing email to family, friends and co-workers.
