The hacker managed to steal $ 16,000, not from Apple, but from a Mac user while an attacker made an expert from the apple logo support and help centers.
According to what appears to be, a corrupt criminal phoned the victim asking for a series of personal details that he allegedly allegedly used this data to solve a problem related to his Mac.
Before proceeding with matters, it is very important to note that Apple doesn't connect its customers by phone, or by email, or via WhatsApp messages.

This is how a terrorist deceives his victim
After contacting the victim by phone, the hacker got some information to access the Mac owner's system. This way, he was able to find bank account information
Rich Kolko, a security expert, spoke the following about the case:
“This is a big way that searchers try to steal your money. They will break into your computer, steal your personal information, including bank details. ”
Dianne Waunsch, a neighbor of the victim, told local news:
"I think it should be very easy to deceive such people, especially if you don't know about it and there is something wrong with your computer."
We are sure that most iPadízate readers would not fight for this kind of trap, but maybe someone knows him. Remember, never trust calls or emails from people claiming to be Apple.
