    Still receiving these 'how to reset' emails - been going on for months.  Then today received an email saying that my account has been used for a download from the United States (I live in UK) on a device previously not associated with my account.  So, apple is effectively admitting that my account has been hacked.


    I am not a developer and in fact I do not use use my account any more as I had so many problems with apple (account continually being blocked among many other problems) that I sold all my apple devices except my iPod Classic, which I now manage with a 3rd party application, having removed iTunes and all other apple software from my PC.


    I have removed payment information from my apple id and they will never see another penny from me as long as I live.

    I got one of these yesterday. It was clearly a fake - they even spelled the header Appel-Store. Duh.


    I live here in France. The message was in French and it was gramatticaly correct but when I moused over the link to see where it would have taken me, irt was clearly not a cool url at all.


    The question is where are these folks getting the Apple ID`s from - or are they simply running a sophisticated random generator ? I suppose they could mine these forums :-).


    The first lesson is as it always has been: never but NEVER, NEVER click on ANY link in an unsollicted inbound email. Respecting that will get you 95% of the way there. That and stong passwords.

    I keep getting them too, its a concern, they seem to be using my fathers name which set alarm bells ringing immediately.

    What I did was isolate the email and sent a copy to Apple, I've heard nothing.


    Tbh, the header info was perfect.

    Yep. Me too. Something's going on. Multiple attempts to access my Apple ID which is not the same name I use here. account currently locked because they failed too many security questons.


    What do I do? Try to change the pasword (on a whole slew of Apple devices)? Or leav ethe (perfectly good) password I have in place and let the criminals keep trying to break that one?
