We could not reset the password for your AppIe lD - Spam Warning   This rather weak spam email

We could not reset the password for your AppIe lD - Spam Warning

 

This rather weak spam email uses a PDF to try and hide it's dirty link to a fraudulent website.

The email itself:

Dear AppIe User.

We could not reset the password for your AppIe lD because there were too many failed attempts to answer your security questions.  

To read your secure message by opening the attachment(PDF).

You will be prompted to open(view)the file or save(download) it to your computer or device

For best results Save the file , then open it on a web browser.

Your account will be locked if we didn’t receive any response from you in more than twenty four hours

Sincerely,          

Apple Support

The Unlock Apple ID link points to:

http://applie-id.veriby.coolambo.ca which is sketchy at best. The website itself is already marked as deceptive by Google and Microsoft and so shouldn't be making too many lives more miserable.

The Apple site impersonation is somewhat more impressive:

And after you type in any email address and password to the unsecured site, it then presents you with:

in which they actually have the audacity to ask for a card number as security.

Hopefully no one will fall for this nonsense, and they will have wasted their time.

Stay vigilant!
