I think there's a new scam going around. This morning I recieved, completely out of the blue, an email supposedly from appleid@id.apple.com telling me to confirm my rescue email address. The email looked genuine and the links, when hovered over, seemed to go to the right place but id.apple.com isn't familiar to me, I've not made any account changes recently, and Apple don't use rescue emails do they?

Also - I don't think Apple just email people out of the blue with requests for personal information like this.

So this would appear to be a new phishing attempt. Looks like a scam, smells like a scam and tastes like a scam.

If anyone knows any different it would be interesting to hear their opinions. For the time being I forwarded the email to Apple's phishing dept and trashed it.
