How to block fake/scam emails from the App Store





First, you have to identify emails from the App Store and problem emails from fake senders attempting to gain access to your account. Basically, Apple will never ask for personal information or account information. They don’t have to and never did without directing you to a real Apple website. Apple would never send you an email with a link that does not bring you to the real Apple websites. They can be tricky to spot sometimes because of such great lengths scammers and “phishers” go to in hopes of gaining information about you. For the most part, anything needing to be done concerning your account can be done in the iTunes application.

Step 1) If you have not already done so, download and install Block Sender.

Step 2) Log into your Gmail account and open the email that was determined as an email you no longer want.

Step 3) Click the Block button located next to the Delete button.

Step 4) Optional: You can click the down arrow button on the Block button and click Options to open the Options page. In there, you can set different actions to be taken on emails that you block. Do note that it does depend on what settings you’re using to handle each block.
