What does the team think ?

Hi,

I have received an e-mail supposedly from Apple, I'm not totally wet behind the ears, has anyone else seen this and do we think it's genuine ?

Obviously have removed the link and the Apple ID, and everything that might require my apple ID on me Mac seems to be working OK.

Like Batboy says- fake.

First time I got one I wasn't sure, so went to the iTunes store to pull up and edit my account details. All perfectly normal.

There are also fakes ones from eBay, amazon everyone in fact.
Only go to a web site using a typed in address or from your own bookmark never from a link in a message.
I'm with plusnet and I got a dialog pop-up box on one site purporting to be from them asking for my feedback, another attempted scam.
