Share This:

We all know how great AirPods are, but unfortunately its popularity has made it a target for scammers. There have been reports of fake AirPod receipt emails circulating around the internet, and it’s important to be aware of these scams so that you don’t fall victim to them.

These fake AirPod receipt emails usually appear to be from Apple, and they will often contain an attachment with a “receipt” for the purchase of AirPods. However, it is important to remember that Apple never sends attachments in email receipts for purchases. If you receive one of these emails with an attachment, it is likly a scam.

If you are not sure whether or not the email is legitimate, it is best to check your purchase history on your Apple ID account. Any legitimate purchases should appear in your purchase history, and if none of the apps from the email appear in your purchase history, then it is almost certain that this is a scam.

It’s also important to remember that if something seems too good to be true (such as an offer for free or discounted AirPods), then it probably is. It would be wise to avoid responding to any unsolicited emails claiming to offer free or discounted items since these are most likely scams as well.

So if you receive an email claiming to be from Apple offering AirPods at a discount or for free, chances are it’s a scam and shold be avoided at all costs! Be sure to double-check your purchase history before responding just in case and always remember that Apple never sends attachments in email receipts for purchases.
