We all get these types off phishing messages and it is not due to Apple being hacked.


These phishers get real addresses from all kinds of sources and sometimes send millions of messages out, hoping one will be legitimate.


Send the message as an attachment to reportphishing@apple.com


Do not respond in any way.

Apple will always address you by your name or the name they have on file for you and the e-mail will be from @apple.com.
