Once the cybercriminals have received the stolen Apple usernames and passwords, they will use it to hijack their potential victims’ Apple accounts and use them fraudulently. Therefore, Apple users who have been tricked by the phishing scam are asked to change their Apple accounts' password, check their accounts for discrepancies and contact Apple for help if any is found.

This is another reason why Apple user should never click on links in email or other messages to sign into their accounts, they should instead, go directly to https://appleid.apple.com/ and sign-in from there. If there is something that needs to be done their accounts, they will be notified after signing in.

    My wife received this message and ignored it figuring it was a scam. Then her phone was locked on the date they specified in the email. The message on her locked phone stated the reason that it was locked was repeated unsuccessful attempts to log-in to her Apple account. She entered her ID to unlock it. Are these two separate incidents or related in some way?

      Tell her to change her password, because it seems she was taken to a phishing website that displayed a message which appears as if her phone was locked.
