Phishing Scams - "Verify Your Account - Apple Expiration"

Apple users should beware of the phishing email messages below with the subjects: "Apple Expiration Your Account" and ""Verify Your Account," which were sent by cyber-criminals to steal their Apple account’s IDs and passwords. The fake email messages claim that the recipients’ Apple accounts have been locked, will be locked, or suspended, and the recipients need to click on a link within the same email messages in order to verify or valid their information. But, the links in the fake email messages will take recipients to phishing websites, where they will be asked to sign into their Apple accounts. Now, if the recipients attempt to sign-in on the phishing websites, their Apple account credentials will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the phishing email messages. With their potential victims’ Apple account credentials, the cyber-criminals will hijack their victims' accounts and use the accounts fraudulently.

Phishing Scams - Verify Your Account - Apple Expiration

Victims of the Apple phishing scams should change their passwords immediately, and check their accounts and credit card statements for any discrepancy. Victims of the phishing email messages, who are unable to their passwords because their accounts have been hijacked by cyber-criminals, should contact Apple for help.
