I received an email today telling me someone accessed my Apple account using an IPhone 5, logging into face time, icloud, and imessage. I don't have an iphone 5! How do I know if the email is real or bogus?
Since you don't have an iPhone 5, and there is another post here stating the same events happening, I think you can safely say it is bogus.
Adding on to what Deggie said, I've also noticed a few threads about this specific topic. As long as you don't have an iPhone 5, there shouldn't be anything to worry about.
You may not have an iPhone 5, but the person who (allegedly) accessed your account might. What address did the email come from? I vote for legitimate.
Also, I would change your password to be 100% safe.
Sounds like the spam I get about every 10 days urgently declaring someone has accessed my personal information and I should click on a link to see what they accessed. That ain't gonna' happen.
Okay thanks everybody! There was no link to go to, so that was a good thing I guess. I changed the password just to be safe!
Yea, the address the email came from was firstname.lastname@example.org
The full header shows it threads back to Apple, so I guess it's a good disquise maybe? Changed the password anyway! Thanks!
Based on the email address it came from, the email's baloney.
Definitely. Apple would never hide an email they sent behind a spoofed sender address.
