Apple - spam example


It is a fraudulent email claiming to come from Apple Inc. The receivers are asked to click the link to validate their apple ID.

The email looks genuine and the content is almost the same as an apple notification. And the sender address is secure@apple.ssl.co.uk, which is hard to judge the authentication. But if you mouse over (but don't click) the link in this email, you will see a pop-up that shows you the actual URL to appid1.co.uk/mod.php, which is a phishing apple website.

This phishing email attempts to fraudulently acquire personal information and apple ID from you, and further get your credit card information of i Cloud and i Tunes. The best way to prevent is not to click on the link in suspicious email, but open a new browser and manually type in the address.
