I install a legitimate iPhone app, and get a suspicious email
On Thursday, I installed the Smart News app on my iPhone. It is true that I had to look around for the right Apple password, as I had not used it for a while.
I later got this bizarre email (shown) from a spammer saying my account was “signed on with another device”. That may be OK, but not the sender address of “account.mail.verify.complite”. What’s going on?
In the past I’ve gotten bogus Apple emails claiming credit card transactions in Indonesia and Belarus for materials I never bought. And no credit card transactions ever appeared.
