Although, the email messages appear as if it came from Apple, they were not. So, ensure that you never click on a link in an email message to sign into your Apple account.

Clicking on the link in the email messages will take the recipient to the following fake or phishing Apple website.

The fake website will ask the potential victims to sign in with their Apple accounts' user id, password and then asked to enter their personal and financial information. Now, if the potential victims enter and submit the requested information, it will be sent to the scammers or cyber-criminals behind the phishing scam.

With the information that they have collected, the cyber-criminals will be able to gain access to victims' account and use it fraudulently. They will also steal the victim's money using the financial information that they have collected from them.
