Keir Thomas, writing for Mac Kung Fu, warning us of a fresh SCAM aimed at stealing your Apple ID:
An extremely convincing iCloud phishing scam site has surfaced. The site uses the URL http://signinicloud.com (DON’T visit it!) and looks and feels just like Apple’s existing https://appleid.apple.com website.
Victims are invited to visit the site via a fake SMS/iMessage received in their iPhone, such as that shown above, and subsequently invited to input a range of personal details – including credit card number.
Inputting any username and password to login to the phishing site – even something like firstname.lastname@example.org and password – returns a message that the account is locked. The user is then invited to input everything from credit card number, to home address, and security questions such as mother’s maiden name and driver’s license.
There are countless scams out there trying to trick you into going to a fake site and entering your password – so we want to post about them when they pop up large enough to effect a large group. This one in particular grabs a bunch of info from you.
Pro-tip: NEVER EVER CLICK A LINK IN AN EMAIL AND ENTER YOUR PASSWORD – if you think an email is legitimate, open your browser on your own and go to a site via Google or better-yet, typing it on your own and then you won’t have to worry about scams like this one.
Be safe out there.
