    my girlfriend is in asia
    yesterday a pick pocket stole her iphone from her purse
    the thief was caught on camera when the store reviewed the security tapes
    but the person got away before she noticed the phone was missing

    after locking the apple ID account on the phone yesterday
    early in the morning I got an email stating the phone was located
    and I needed to log in to view it on the map
    but the connection is unsecure, so it seems fishy and the website ends in
    not actually

    I dont see how the thief would have known my email address though
    anyway, here are some screens of the email links

    I was getting the original email from

    Don't enter your information in that site. That is a fake webpage. The real webpage is and only anything after is fake.

    Also the real email would be from Apple, not iCloud.

    No doubt a phishing site. Don’t enter anything.

    As everyone else has pointed out, this is a 100% fake email and web site.

    "" in that email is a text field. It can say anything.

    If the web page were real, it would be an SSL secured page with a certificate owned by Apple. The page you were sent to is not secured at all, as your browser is loudly warning.

    And, Apple has changed the background of the web site since this fake web page was set up. Check out the appearance of the real web page at
