Where are you seeing this message? Is this an e-mail you received? If so, are you sure the message is legitimate? Does it contain a link for you to sign in somewhere? It may be a scam.



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. Apple e-mails will never contain an attachment.


Avoid phishing emails, fake ‘virus‘ alerts, phony support calls, and other scams



Identifying legitimate emails from the iTunes Store



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.

To be safe, if you have any questions about your account status, before doing anything, contact iTunes Support.

That is a scam. Wrong return e-mail address and it doesn't address you by the name Apple has on file for you. Apple will not send you an e-mail telling you your ID is locked or disabled. If you signed in, change your password.


Apple ID Password Change



What to do after you change your Apple ID or password - Apple Support I suggest doing this before you change your Apple ID or password.
