Your Apple ID has been suspended on Saturday, May, 14 2022 for security reasons, due to multiple invalid login attempts
You cannot access your account and any Apple services, To unlock it you must verify identity
For your security and to ensure only you have access to your account, we will ask you to verify your identity
If you want to check if your Apple ID is locked or not, go directly to https://appleid.apple.com. If your ID was locked for security reasons you will be notified after attempting to sign in.
If you were tricked by the Apple ID Locked scam, please change your Apple password immediately, before your account is hijacked and used fraudulently. And, contact Apple for help.
