Apple Pay may be a convenient way to send money, but it's also become a favorite among scammers looking to make a quick buck at your expense.
Whether it's the IRS, Social Security office, or a relative, be careful with anyone asking for payment via an Apple gift card—it's likely a scam.
Beating this scam is simple—don't pay for anything using gift cards and don't give anyone you don't know or trust your gift card information.
If you receive a phone call from Apple Support, it could be a scammer attempting to steal your information and access your accounts.
If you've been notified that your Apple ID has been locked, don't click the link in the email as this could be an attempt to steal your password.
