    I just got an email from a "online@apple.com" which had a strange recieved from address when displaying the full header.

    The mail asked me to verify my apple ID since someone had tried to log on using my ID. Stupidly enough I clicked the "Verify>" link without checking where it would lead me, and it lead me to "http://krishnagargovtcollege.org/cc", which resembled the apple home page. I then closed the website and sent the mail to abuse@icloud.com.

    I didn't provide the phishing site with any information, the only thing I did was click the link in the mail.

    Am I in trouble, do I need to change my password or something, or is it required that you give them the information they need on that phishing site? (I'm hoping they didn't get the info automatically from me clicking the link on my mail account)

    Thank you

    You will die.

    But really, if you didn't give them any info, I think you're okay.

    If you didn't enter any personal information, you're fine.
    LOL! :D

    You did tell them:
    1. The email address is live.
    2. The person at the email address occasionally clicks links without looking.
    3. Your IP address.
