    Just thought i'd warn you guys....there is a VERY realistic looking e mail going round saying that you have bought a postcard for $699....i was a little shaken at first thinking someone had hacked my account but i've seen others saying they have had the same thing, must be a phishy email!!

    i'm really sorry, i deleted it as i **** myself lol

    it looks pretty much exactly like an itunes receipt bill email......but my account is in £ and it came in $ so knew something was up....also near the bottom it said something about FBI fraud or something

    sorry couldn't be more help but deleted it from my whole email :(

    others have had it too...see here:

    Good to know, have not had it myself, but UK users over on the Communities report it too.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I've been lucky to not get emails like this but I'm always on the lookout.

    Thanks for the shot...You can see how some people could fall for this...I've seen worse pass for genuine...I wonder if this is targeting webmail accounts mostly?
