The email message below with the subject "Please reviews your AppIe ID profile" is another attempt by cybercriminals to steal their potential victims’ Apple account credentials. The fake email, which falsely claims the recipients' Apple and iCloud accounts will be deleted, has links in it that go to a phishing or fake Apple website. The phishing website steals account credentials and personal information by asking visitors to sign-in with their Apple account usernames and passwords.
Now, any attempt to sign into the fake or phishing website will result in the visitors’ Apple account credentials being sent to the cybercriminals responsible for the scam. Once the cyber crooks have gotten possession of the stolen account credentials, they will use it to hijack their victims’ Apple accounts and use the same accounts fraudulently.
