Question: Email scams

if you get any emails from your banks or Apple, and they request information or they contain a short cut to their sites, Only log in via a search engine, never via the email short cuts.

Phishing is a huge problem and it will happen to even the smartest. Slow down, think about what is being told to you. If you haven’t made a purchase, then it’s a scam to get you to give information freely. If someone calls you from your bank, call them back from another phone if possible, scammers can and do intercept your calls and texts.

i get several phishing emails a month. You can stop them trying, but you can stop them getting your information by ignoring them, follow simple rules of internet security.

On buying online, If an advert looks too good to be true, then it’s not. Don’t let greed be your undoing, you can’t con an honest person.

How to report phishing emails to Apple:

These email addresses are monitored by Apple, but you might not receive a reply to your report.

  • If you receive what you believe to be a phishing email that's designed to look like it’s from Apple, please send it to reportphishing@apple.com.
  • To report spam or other suspicious emails that you receive in your iCloud.com, me.com, or mac.com Inbox, please send them to abuse@icloud.com.
  • To report spam or other suspicious messages that you receive through iMessage, tap Report Junk under the message, or take a screenshot on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac and send it to imessage.spam@apple.com.
  • If you receive a suspicious message about your purchase activity in the iTunes Store, App Store, or iBooks Store, contact iTunes Support.

See my other response to you. Scammers do not use the same sending email address repeatedly. They spoof the addresses of innocent third parties so if you block them today their scam email will get through on their next mailing.
