Phishing emails now threaten Apple account suspension
I continue to get a lot of phishing emails claiming to be Apple claiming I purchased services and games in third world countries, never showing up on a credit card statement. I don’t know if it hurts me if somebody impersonates me in Indonesia or Kazakhstan.
But today I got one claiming my Apple account was about to be suspended. The domain had a .nl TLD. Many of the emails come from “my.com”.
I forwarded these to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I do note that Apple now enforces two-step verification to sign on to iCloud on a laptop or desktop, For some reason, my photos haven’t backed up since Oct. 1, even though I have separate WiFi from Cox on my phone when at home.
