    I got the same email a couple of weeks ago. I’m positive it’s a scam. I deleted the email. I also got some crazy “your account is locked” pop ups on my MacBook Pro!!!! I since factory reset my laptop and have not had a problem since. These hackers are out of control!!!

    That’s what I figured, due to weird wording and random capitalization. Thanks for confirming!

    When you get an email from Apple, tap on the email address in the ‘from’ section.
    You will see the precise email address it was sent from.
    If it doesn’t end op @Apple.com, it 100% sure is a scam.

    It's always good to share these incidents with us when they happen because it helps everyone to be aware, so thanks!

    A few things stand out like a sore thumb:

    1 - The word "acttivity" in the subject line
    2 - "We recommend to you to...." Huh???
    3 - "before 24 hours" should read "in the next 24 hours".
    4 - Why is "Permanently Locked" capitalized?
    5 - "You can update your account at here". Again....Huh?????
