The link in the phishing email message goes to a fake Apple website, which has been created by cyber-criminals to trick their potential victims into entering their Apple username, password and credit card information on it. If the requested information is submitted by the potential victims, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals, who will use it to steal their money and use their accounts fraudulently. The cyber-criminals / scammers behind the phishing email message will change the website's name, so look out for similar phishing email messages with links that go to different phishing websites.

If you are tricked into submitting your Apple credentials and credit card information on the fake web page, please change your Apple password immediately and contact your bank and let them know that you have unknowingly submitted your credit card information on a phishing website.

Remember, never click on a link to sign into your Apple account, always go directly to https://appleid.apple.com and log in from there and check your account for any discrepancies.
