    Hey everyone,

    I wanted to share with all of you so you could be aware. I got this email this morning in one of my old email accounts. It's supposedly from Apple, but there are so many obvious flaws that it's got to be a phishing scam. In checking the return email address, it's wasn't even sent from Apple, but rather, live.com. Here is a screenshot:

    Looks familiar. I've gotten the same message, to an email account that I've only ever used for low-priority subscriptions for flyers, etc. Never as an Apple ID.

    Years ago, I did use this account for my Apple ID, which is why I looked at it. Normally, I'd have deleted it without looking!

    I get those from time to time. They never come in on the email address I use for Apple stuff. LOL Everything I get from Apple comes to a specific email address. I don't use it for much of anything else.
