A new scam has arrived is been distributed around making our customer concerned thinking there Apple ID will be disabled within 24 hours if they don’t reply.
If you receive this email please don’t open the attachment that’s is enclosed this email.
A Apple spokesman comfirmed this a virus and advises no customer to open the attachment. They confirmed Apple does not start emails with “Dear (email address)” they said they have loads of calls regarding this and some people are receiving 3 times a day. They also confirmed if you Apple ID was locked then you wouldn’t receive a email regarding this, you would find out when you tried to log in and would then have to contact Apple support.
There a various variants of this type of email (together with the ‘you have a virus’ scams). Never click on a link or follow up a phone number in emails or pop-ups of this type. Although Apple do own Apple.co.uk they always send emails from Apple.com – it’s very easy to fake the ‘From address on email’
