I am sure there is a different threat on the way if you follow the link.
Took a dance with the devil. the site looks very apple, and redirect links to the real apple site.
But if you try entering an e-mail address and password, you get redirected to an unsavory google search.
I am sure there is an e-mail on route the the address I used extorting money!

What a hero !  .....  well done that man ! !...
I don`t have anything Apple... nor any "cloud" stuff... so it would not apply to me... but to those that do have something Apple, it could be quite a threat to them...
