    Don't know. Can you just tell about it? Maybe copy and paste some?

    How about information directly from Apple in regard to Phishing?

    Since you're not sure, I'm going to send you the link directly, and a brief description! I don't want to get into any trouble!

    I've seen scams like this quite a bit. Usually an email. They're phishing for your personal info. In this case, the Apple ID.

    Right! But I've never heard of a text like this! Is it ok to post, or is it even worth it?

    It's fine to post about it. They're just trying to get away from too many links. I've never seen an Apple related scam via text. Others though. All my Apple scams have been via email.

    Ok, here is the link about this "newest" phishing scam, which apparently comes through in a text, telling you that you need to update your Apple ID (and of course, there's a link for the user to click on):

    They are probably the group that is doing something similar to Microsoft windows users. A phone call warning that your product key is set to expire. How do people fall for this crap?

    Beats the heck out of me! We've got my MIL so frightened to click on anything, that she won't do anything until she's consulted us... including updating her iPhone and iPad!
