ITunes Scam

(Gallatin County, Montana) The latest gift card scam reported to the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office involves iTunes cards. In this case, someone hacked a Yahoo account and sent out requests to the contact list, asking for them to purchase iTunes gift cards and email the codes on the cards. The emails contained enough information to sound plausible to the recipients. The emails were sent out on more than one email account. If you receive any communication over email or social media that involves gift cards, investigate further before acting on it, even if you recognize the sender.
