    Received this in my e-mail today:

    Apple Payment Payment Has Been Complete:please check your Receipt Customer ID-899782.nice day Thursday, October 11,2018#95647
    date today at 2:15 PM
    Apple Payment

    Type:in-App Purchases
    Payment Method Credit iTune Store

    Added information below: Notice the poor spelling.

    What these people want you to do is follow their directions in the downloaded PDF receipt, telling you if you did not order this item click on this (iTunes Payment Cancelation Form and follow the steps.)
    If you do this it would take you to a non secure online address giving them your information or allowing them to get inside your computer.

    Yeah this is an old one. I think everyone here must’ve received this email at least once. But thanks for posting.

    Already forwarded it to Apple, but I got one similar earlier today that said I started a trial of VSCO's yearly membership. I don't use it, but I bet you they know that so many people do and they might think they had accidentally pressed something to start a trial and will go try and get it cancelled through there.
