Question: SUSPICIOUS EMAIL - SUPPOSEDLY FROM APPLE

I received an email from Apple saying that 'as part of our security agreement my Apple ID has been disabled' and asking me to update account information. I'm not sure if this is from Apple. My ID still works. The message said if I didn't reply in 48 hours all my information would be deleted. Has anyone else received this message?

Identifying legitimate emails from the iTunes Store - http://support.apple.com/HT201679 - lacking in specifics, the next link is better:

- Apple e-mails address you by your real name, not something like "Dear Customer" or "Dear Client".

- Apple e-mails originate from @apple.com or @itunes.com but I think it is possible to spoof a sender address

- Mouse over links to see if they direct to real Apple web sites.
