Don’t get caught in this phishing scam

Watch out for a phishing email that appears to come from Apple Support threatening suspension of your Apple ID and iCloud accounts because you didn’t reply to an earlier verification email. The phishing email includes a link that allows you to "verify now," but if you click on the link, you land on a bogus Web page. The Web page looks real — complete with seemingly legitimate information about why you need to complete the verification process — but it tries to scam you into giving out your password, credit card and other personal information.

Remember: Think before you click. Do not trust links in email, even if they look legitimate. Always go directly to the website of a vendor.
