    I got this email a few minutes ago. I know it's fake. It came to an email address that is not associated with my Apple Accounts. Here is a screenshot:

    Fake email from Apple re: Find my iPhone-scam-email.jpg

    The return email address clearly is not an apple email address, and when I hovered over the link, it was obviously not for apple id!

    So if you get something like this... delete.. and do not, whatever you do, click on any links!

    Thanks Annie. Spammers are getting creative lately.

    Simply reading the email should be our first indication that this isn't legit, lol. It's poorly worded. Unfortunately, some folks do fall victim.

    I send notices out regularly to my family making them aware of these kinds of scams so they don't fall victim.

    Thanks for sharing!

    "secure your account to avoid unwanted things"? These schlongs could scam many more people if they had a slightly better grasp of the English language

    Thanks for the heads up. I always know too, as all my Apple correspondence goes to a separate email address reserved only for Apple. All spam and scam go to my main email junk folder.

    I've been getting emails from "Apple Music". They are very well done, but still flawed enough to be recognize. As always they are forwarded to reportphishing@apple.com

    Good catch. Always need to keep an eye out for this sort of thing.

    I don’t pay attention to these kind of emails.
    When there is something wrong with my Apple ID I’ll know by prompts on my iPhone screen.

    Disclaimer: if such a prompt disappears when you press the home button, then it’s not an authentic Apple prompt.
