「iTunes Gift Card」詐欺

Appleは「iTunes Gift Card Scams」と題するiTunes Gift Cardの詐欺に注意するようにとアナウンスしています


A string of scams are taking place asking people to make payments over the phone for things such as taxes, hospital bills, bail money, debt collection, and utility bills.


Regardless of the reason for payment, the scam follows a certain formula


he victim receives a call instilling panic and urgency to make a payment by purchasing iTunes Gift Cards from the nearest retailer (convenience store, electronics retailer, etc.). After the cards have been purchased, the victim is asked to pay by sharing the 16-digit code on the back of the card with the caller over the phone.

If you are NOT purchasing an item from the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, or an Apple Music membership, do NOT make a payment with iTunes Gift Cards. There’s no other instance in which you’ll be asked to make a payment with an iTunes Gift Card.

「iTunes Store、App Store、iBooks Store、またはApple Music以外にiTunes Gift Cardを使って支払いをするよう求められる他の例はありません」

様は、「iTunes Store」「App Store」「iBooks Store」または「Apple Music」では「iTunes Gift Card」の番号を求められることはないと言うことです
