    It seems as if someone is attempting a phishing scam. I received this message today through text. I immediately blocked the number but I wanted to put you guys on notice to not click any links in a message you receive from an unknown number. Also do not provide any passwords to anyone claiming they're Apple asking for them. Scam-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1451927623.786898.jpg

    What phone service do you have? Never mind, I see it's Verizon. LOL

    You can forward that to
    phishing@verizonwireless.com

    They'll investigate.

    I've not had any my scam SMS like this yet but I get plenty of phishing emails purporting to be from Apple asking me to verify my details as 'they have locked my account due to privacy concerns'...

    I get those too. But I have also gotten a few phishing texts since I got my first iPhone 4 years ago. Maybe 6 or 7.

    I have never gotten any of those texts and I'm on ATT. Thanks for the heads up. My wife is on Verizon and all of a sudden she started receiving texts for 3 unknown numbers. I went onto Verizon and blocked those number for 3 or 6 month for free. The block expired and no new text messages from unknown numbers.
