Now we come to the iCloud, the place where Apple fans like to store all their top secret files.
Even Apple warns their users that scammers will copy email and text messages to trick you.

These are the signs of a phishing scam:

  • Sender’s email or phone number doesn’t match the name of the company that it claims to be from.
  • Your email or phone number is different from the one you gave that company.
  • Message starts with generic greeting, like “Dear customer.” Legit companies include your name in messages to you.
  • Link looks legitimate but takes you to a website whose URL doesn’t match.
  • Message looks different from other messages you’ve received from the company.
  • Message requests personal information, like a credit card number or account password.
  • Message is unsolicited or has an attachment.
