BEWARE ~ phishing scam: Within the past 24 hours I received two bogus
email confirmations informing me that my order for an Apple iPhone 6 Plus,
Gold, has been received and that my credit card has been charged $654.12.
(I would never have placed this order.) The email wants me to click an
(unknown) Account link if the order is in dispute (it is).

DO NOT CLICK THE LINK!

Did they actually charge your credit card, too? Or do we guess that the "click this link" is intended to get you to provide all your credit card info?
