Scram/phishing?

Postby DonnaH » Sun Jul 01, 2018 9:11 am

Morning everyone: I think I'm right about this but want to double check and perhaps alert anyone else to a weird email I recieved a couple days ago. Says it's from Apple support, says someone signed into my Apple id using Firefox on Linux? Now I do use Firefox on occassion but Linux? I have never used that and I sure never put it on the mac here. Says the usual "do not reply here, click the link etc" (bad grammer and sentence structure etc I might add throughout) So I'm sure I'm correct that it's false. Just wanted to ask about the Linux thing. If I didn't put it on here then it's not on right?

Also, a little late, but thanks Chas for the help on the iPhone thing, I think I've got most things under control now, never fails, I get all excited about getting the new device, then I mess it up and wish I could go back to the old and familiar!! But that goes away after a couple days too, thank goodness, lol.

Happy Canada Day Everyone!!!!!!!! Donna

You would do yourself a favour by Deleting that email "from Apple".

Always check a questionable email by clicking on the Sender name; that will tell you who it really is from. The last few letters are a give-away … could be (dot) jp or dot-something else.

Alan Perry put out a very helpful list on such emails and where to send them. Very helpful - and very satisfying to me - to think that the "big boys" can deal with such miserable, bothersome items.
