Beware of Apple Verification Email Scam

Here’s the phishing scam of the week. This phishing email appears to come from Apple Support and threatens to suspend your account because you did not reply to an earlier verification email. The message has a link that allows you to “verify now”, but if you click on it, you land on a bogus webpage that looks like it belongs to Apple but does not. It then asks for further information and tries to manipulate you into giving out your password, credit card and other personal information.

Don’t fall for this scam. Always go directly to the website of any vendor and do not click on links in emails, even if they look legitimate. Think Before You Click!
