Answer:
Answer:

How do you know that someone used your Apple ID? If you received an email about this, DO NOT click on anything in the email and follow these steps:


1. Check your payment history to see if you have any unusual charges: See your purchase history in the App Store or iTunes Store - Apple Support


2. If you received this notification in an email, see these articles:

Avoid phishing emails, fake 'virus' alerts, phony support calls, and other scams - Apple Support

Identify legitimate emails from the App Store or iTunes Store - Apple Support

Realize that Apple will always address you by your real name and will not ask you for your social security or other identifying information in order to 'regain access' to your account, especially through an email.


3. Secure your account from anyone else: If you think your Apple ID has been compromised - Apple Support

It's a phishing email (genuine emails will address you by name, and they wouldn't ask you to update your payment details) - you could forward it to Apple : reportphishing@apple.com , and then delete it.

This is a fake message. DO NOT, under any circumstances, follow any of the links or download any attached files. Follow the instructions here: Phishing & Other Suspicious Emails

Reporting Suspected Phishing Attempts

If you receive what you believe to be a phishing email purporting to be from Apple, please send it to reportphishing@apple.com, a monitored email inbox, which does not generate individual email replies.

Forwarding the message with complete header information provides Apple with important information. To do this in OS X Mail, select the message and choose Forward As Attachment from the Message menu. For other email applications or webmail based services, consult your provider’s support information to determine how to forward messages with complete headers.

This is a phishing email. After you've sent it, delete it from your inbox. You did an excellent job by not clicking on the links! 🙂
