Dear "Customer"

Got a highly suspicious email today from "Apple":

Check out that "Apple" email address.

Here's what they wanted:

Yeah, the link actually says "Verification My Account".


Oh, and just for kicks, this was at the bottom of the email:

If like me, you want to know more about phishing and email scams from jackasses claiming to be from Apple, go here.

As instructed, I forwarded the email to Apple with this message:

I don't know what they would get out of being able to hack someone's Apple account, unless they're looking to hack Apple Pay accounts (which I don't have) but let's face it, email scams and phishing have been around for a while and apparently aren't going away. The sad thing is they may actually sucker people and rip them off.
