    This one purports to be from Apple asking you to confirm your iTunes account details. It does't look even remotely genuine but I'm sure it will catch someone out.

    If anyone gets this one or one like it forward it as an attachment to reportphishing@apple.com

    The main point again in all of this type of email is that you will never ever be asked to click a link in an email to confirm your details if it is genuine.

    I get these sort of things every day. The latest is about my RBS account - which I don't have.

    I get those ones a lot too. I just thought I would post this one as it's the first one I've ever had claiming to be from Apple.

    Here's the one I got. Reported it to Apple but never get a reply, as usual.

    If I were to receive anything that started "Dear Apple Customer" I would automatically know it was a scam...

    unless it was from green grocer.

    I have never owned apple products nor used HSBC Bank. I get emails from these and others but never click on it. If I get one from accounts I do have I just go to their own website and go through that. It's always a phishing email.

    You must be a mind reader JJ, I read the first one and thought
    ......" I bet JJ doesn't get too many of these".......:active:

    .......But you know you want to, come on, treat yourself, chuck that old Samsung crap away and spend some real money on quality gear!:reel:

    I bought my Note 4 the first day it was launched here in Portugal... only a few weeks ago...

    What a superb bit of kit...
