Question: Phony Apple Order Email.
I received an email yesterday regarding an ICloud order I supposedly placed. Since I didn't recall such an order I attempted to access it via the order number referenced in the email. When I did so I was directed to a website that appeared to be the Apple home page but was then told my account was locked due to misuse and there was a link to click to unlock the account. That link accessed a page requesting all my information (name, address, phone, Apple ID and credit card information). I had thought this to be a scam email to start with and was certain after this so I went to the official Apple page via my browser and successfully logged into my account with no problem. I then attempted to access the order number referenced in the email and found it to not be a real Apple order number.

This is a copy of the email, I couldn't get any better version to attach here for whatever reason so used this one. If I hadn't payed careful attention to the way this link acted I could have been scammed and had my information compromised. Please check carefully any emails appearing to be from Apple, or other such site, before responding to them.
