Watch out! There are Apple ID SMS phishers about! – Graham Cluley

It’s not just your bank accounts that online criminals are keen to break into. They would quite like to hijack your Apple ID credentials too.

A number of people have reported receiving a text message from “AppleInc” over the weekend, claiming that their Apple IDs was about to expire – and urging them to click on a link if they wanted to keep it.

Of course, the scammers have chosen their words carefully – making the message appear urgent to encourage as many people as possible to click on the link without properly considering the potential pitfalls.

Be very careful if you get an iMessage or SMS like this.
