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.

You should forward that email to reportphishing@apple.com

In a message Apple will always address you by your real name, never by your email address or Dear Customer. Also the sent-from address should be @apple.com or @itunes.com Additionally Apple does not send attachments.
