Beware of "Apple Account Submitted to Reset your Password for Our Client Dashboard" Phishing Scam

The email message below, which claims the recipients' Apple ID has been automatically disabled because of unauthorized login attempts, is another attempt by cybercriminals to steal their potential victims’ Apple account credentials. The fake email has links in it that go to the phishing Apple website that steals account usernames and password. The phishing website steals account credentials 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.
