Default Another Phish for the fire

Another mail from "Apple Service" wanting to verify ID on my acct. Please do not fall for this phishing scam. Not even legit looking, and I'm sure I would get a pop up on the Ipad if there was a problem. I tracked it to @kundenserver.de

I have been getting invoices for stuff I never ordered from folks I have never heard from. It is annoying. Don't click on any attachment -- it will probably unleash a virus of some sort on your machine. Look at the email address -- if you do not recognize the part after the @, then it is probably a phony.

It is so annoying to get those emails and text messages.

I agree. I don't open anything that I do not recognize and delete them immediately. I keep a very low profile on the internet with only membership to this site so I just don't get any emails from strangers.

I received one a couple of weeks ago. I notified Apple's fraud dept.

I get them everyday and every day I trash them. I do contact certain companies on fraud alert, though.

I got one last week. Apple does not send requests for information that they already have. Also there was an obvious typo, so they don't apparently speak English. I also get messages that my pay pal account has been compromised. I used to have a pay pal account, but it hasn't been used for several years. I just forward it to their investigation department.

That is correct! I have been getting invoices with amounts billed. I hit delete! And do not open the attachment.
