A Sample of a Fake Message Used By the Cybercriminals

"We strongly recommend not to use your Apple or other computing devices and less you speak to an Apple certified technician for help and support or Apple will be forced to terminate your iCloud ID to talk to…Apple certified technician press one now…”

If the recipients call the number, they will get an Interactive Voice Response system or a person asking them for their account credentials, personal information, including their social security numbers, bank account numbers, or other information the cybercriminals need in order to gain access to their potential victims’ accounts, steal their money and use their accounts fraudulently.

Recipients of the fake messages who have called 1-206-451-5251 and given out their banking information are asked to contact their banks for help, change the password of their online accounts, and contact their local authority if they gave out other sensitive information.

    Similar experience as noted above. Said they were Apple and they would lock my Apple ID as someone suspicious has been accessing it ...

    They knew my sons names and asked if I had shared my password with anyone. I asked what email account was hacked and he would not tell me saying it was against rules. I said if it's already been hacked what's the issue? - would not provide the email in question. Gave me his name, which I don't remember, and said I could verify his credentials (my word) on Google.
