    They knew that my email address is listed as a recovery email for another account, and that right there made me almost fall for it. I'm glad I looked at all of the fine print at the bottom of the phony alert and noticed how odd much of it was.

    I've received numerous emails in this same vein. They come from "Account Support", "Administrator", "Apple Support", etc. and they all claim that my mac.com account is involved.

    At the bottom, it claims to come from .mac and has the SAME 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA address.

    I don't have a hotmail, gmail or sbcglobal email. Putting the cursor above the sender shows these are coming from Germany, Italy, France, the UK, etc. This rash of emails started about a month ago.
