Hi guys I haven't managed to find a link to inform APPLE directly of this scam, so here are the details..

 

I recieved this email to my registered Apple ID address....

 

The link below connects to http://www.mesinpertanian.com/apple.htm which is obviously a fake phishing page.

It goes without saying that this is a fake site that just wants your credit card and ID details.

 

Dear Customer,

 

It has come to our attention that your account Billing Information records are out of date. That requires you to update your Billing Information. Failure to update your records will result in account termination.

 

Click on the reference link below and enter your login information on the following page to confirm your Billing Information records...

 

Click on http://store.apple.com to confirm your Billing Information records.

 

Thanks,
Apple Customer Support

if anyone knows how to inform the chaps at APPLE so they can close it down. Please forward it.

    Very interesting. The WHOIS for mesinpertanian.com is different from kingofcostumes.com, which is the domain that is being used in other scam emails that are being sent out using the very same stationery and message. The latter is in New York, while this one is in Indonesia. Here it is for anyone who is interested:
