SCAM Warning: Scam email regarding Apple iTunes cards/vouchers
A Halton resident has received an email, which gave the impression it was from a family member about arranging a present for their niece.
The email then goes on to state their niece would like £300 of Apple iTunes vouchers/cards. The email explains that they should reply to the email with pictures/photo messages of the unique codes on the Apple iTunes vouchers/cards.
This is a scam, consumers should also be aware of similar variations of this scam.  
 
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a fraud please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775, who are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.
If you need advice on anything else please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline  or 03454 04 05 06

kind regards
