I'll be honest.
If I had Verizon, I might have fallen for that one if it looked real.
how can you tell it's not apple saying they had trouble getting your iphone activated?
If I got an email from apple saying they had trouble with my AT&T account when getting my phone ready to ship, I'd be wanting to call in and fix it. I could see myself freaking out and promptly calling to keep from having my order canceled and having to wait like 6 weeks for the phone.
I guess if I do get any email from apple, I'll just call apple customer support via 1 800-MY-APPLE, so as to be sure I'm safe and don't call a bogus number or reply to email and get hacked.
seriously these phishing scammers need to be round up and shot. These spammers and scammers and such are ruining the internet.
