Scam – Some limitations have been placed on your Apple account

Wow, this is a pretty convincing email that appears to be coming from Apple. Right down to the links at the bottom. I get emails from Apple all week long, and this is how they look for the most part. Before I clicked the “Verify Now” link, which is an odd request from Apple, I checked the sender address. That’s where I spotted the “.RU” at the end.

Please don’t be fooled by these types of scams. Always verify the sender information. Apple would always address you by name and seldom would ask you to verify your info in this way.

BTW at the bottom of the email, is a broken graphic. That graphic is most likely used to verify your email address and track that you’ve opened the email. Which means that even if you don’t get fooled and click the links, you can look forward to months of new Spam.
