Phishing & Other Suspicious Emails
Phishing is an email designed to steal personal information, such as your Apple ID password, credit card number, and/or Apple ID password. The email might appear to come from a legitimate individual or company, but it is not.
You should never send personal information such as account passwords or credit card numbers via email. Many companies have policies that prohibit the solicitation of such information by email.
Apple ID Security is available if you have concerns about your Apple ID, or any other Apple accounts.
Reporting suspected Phishing Attempts
If you receive what you believe to be a phishing email purporting to be from Apple, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, a monitored email inbox, which does not generate individual email replies.
Apple receives important information by forwarding the message with full header information. In OS X Mail select the message and then choose Forward as Attachment in the Message Menu. To forward messages with full headers to other email programs or webmail-based services, please consult the support information of your provider.
