Question: Apple ID/I cloud email verification

I received an email from “APPLE” informing me that my apple ID/iCloud account was accessed by an outside source in Moscow, Russia. Listed an IP address too. Wanted me to click thru to verify my identity. Did not do it. Would you be able to confirm that this is legit or a scam?

Answer:
Answer:

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 or @iTunes.com. E-mail addresses can be spoofed. You can go to Mail/View/Message/Show all Headers to see more.

Send the e-mail to Apple as an attachment to a new e-mail before deleting it. You can forward as an attachment by going to Mail/Message/Forward as attachment.
