Apple & ICloud I.D completion...... WARNING...... suspect message


For me, this is an obvious "scam" attempt... .... because I have no APPLE equipment... ( don` even eat them ! ! !)... and I do not have Icloud account either.....

BUT.... for those who do.....  it COULD look Genuine  .......

Posted as a "warning" to all APPLE and Icloud account holders....

I got one of these on the 27th of Dec but my URL was :
http://XXXXXXXXXXXXX.x/mypreferences/?email=my@email.address.
And I agree quite convincing, but the reason I knew it was iffy was that it was sent to different email address that has nothing to do with my apple account!

I got one of these, too. Don't have any Apple products or iCloud account.
