"Υour Aссount is Nοw Lοcκеԁ" Apple Phishing Scam
The email message below with the subject: "Υour Aссount is Nοw Lοcked," is an Apple phishing scam, which was sent by cyber-criminals to steal the recipients' Apple account IDs and passwords. The fake email message claims that the recipients’ Apple accounts have been locked because they have been used to open a session from an unauthorized computer, and the recipients need to click on a link or button within the same email message in order to access their accounts, will take recipients to phishing or malicious 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.
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 message, who are unable to change their passwords because their accounts have been hijacked by cyber-criminals, should contact Apple for help.
