SCAM!

We have been made aware of a scam Email being sent, the mail appears to come from Apple informing you that you have just purchased an app and providing a link to cancel the purchase.

The version we have seen refers to the TomTom sat nav app, but the scam mail could name any app. The mail contains a link to a cancellation form which asks you to provide bank account details so you can be refunded for the purchase.
