scam fake phishing email “Your Apple ID has been locked for security reasons. To unlock it, you must verify your identity.”

Be careful folks. This email below and many similar one will bypass your junk spam email because your email will not capture it due to the fact that the email was encrypted with garbage characters but your email html format will actually display it in plain english words like below.

Do not click on the link from any email, do not click on link from sms text messages on your phone, do not click on link from any social media messages even on mobile phone, chances are those links will take you to a fake website that replicate the real website and you will not notice even looking the domain quickly. Let say the domain is apple.com but the hacker could have it as apple.com.applesupporthello.com so you notice the apple.com at the front but that’s not the real domain, also it could also be aapplle.com for example. So becareful folks, make sure your pay attention to the spelling. It’s the fundamental of understanding the correct domain name spelling to avoid getting scammed phishing attack.

Dear Customer

Your Apple ID has been locked for security reasons. To unlock it,
