Beware of Apple App Store Recent Activity and Account Information Review or Confirmation Phishing Scams

The email message below, which asks the recipients to review, verify and confirm their Apple account information, is another phishing scam. The phishing email message is being sent by cyber criminals to trick Apple users into clicking on the link in it. The link in the email message goes to a fake Apple website that will ask visitors to sign-in. Once visitors attempt to sign into the fake website with their Apple user names and passwords, the same information will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the phishing scam.

Please continue below.

Once the cyber criminals 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.
