I received a message from “Apple” a few days ago. At first blush, I thought it was real – telling me my account was frozen. But after about 1/2 a second, I realized it was spam. I hovered my mouse over the link to verify my account and realized the link did NOT lead to Apple’s web site, but to another web site.
There were, I’m sure, many people who did click this link and had some malicious code attack their computer or worse.
Thankfully I was VIGILANT and TOOK MY TIME – do these two things with every email you get – BEFORE you click and you’ll increase your chances of being safe online.
