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 reportphishing@apple.com.

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.
