Phony iTunes Gift Certificate Notice

Another variation on a well-worn campaign to trick recipients into opening an attached malware loader:

From: iTunes Store
Subject: Thank you for buying iTunes Gift Certificate

Dear customer,

You have received an Itunes Gift Certificate in the amount of $50
You can find your certificate code in attachment below.

Then you need to open iTunes. Once you verify your account, $50 will be credited to your account.
So you can start buying video, music, games right away.

iTunes Store.
