Keep yourself safe online

This probably goes without saying but I’ll say it anyway. Never trust an email link when it comes to your personal information. 

For the 5th time this year I’ve received an email claiming that there is “Suspicious activity” on my apple account. Usually goes the same way. “Follow this link to confirm details”

This isn’t just for apple it happens all across the internet. If you open these links they look really official. Looks like the real site but that means nothing. Anyone with any simple computer experience can in a matter of minutes copy any web page and make it look real. 

Anyway the page you will end up on will ask you to fill out a form with all your personal information. Basically you are giving full access to your credit card or debit card to whoever is on the other side of this link.  

Each time this happens instead of following the email link I log into my Apple ID and each time there has been no sign of “Suspicious Activity” 

I’ve seen too many people falling for this scam. I hope this helps someone somewhere. 

Big Love
