Apple Phishing Scam

I got this E-Mail This morning:

"Apple service@mail.com via linux.nrserver9.net
8:30 AM (1 hour ago)

to me
Dear Client,

Your account has been frozen temporarily in order to protect it.

The account will continue to be frozen until it is approved And Validate Your Account Information.
Once you have updated your account records, your information will be confirmed and your account will start to work as normal once again.

Wondering why you got this email?

It's sent when someone adds or changes a contact email address for an Apple ID account. If you didn't do this, don't worry. Your email address cannot be used as a contact address for an Apple ID without your verification.

For more information, see our frequently asked questions.

Thanks,
Apple Customer Support"


Needless to say, this is a Phishing Scam.

I called Apple and the first tech just troubleshot my account, but he didn't know what to do with the Phishing thing!!

The supervisor told me to forward this E-Mail to:
reportphishing@apple.com

They promptly replied with a Receipt auto E-Mail.

Please be warned about this.
