"Apple Account Suspended Notification" Scam

Apple Account Suspended Notification Scam

The fake Apple account suspension notification email message below which claims that the recipient's account has been disabled temporarily is a phishing scam. The fake email has links in it that go to a phishing Apple website which steals account usernames and passwords. 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.
