    I pretty much delete anything and everything I get. And directly go to the website itself.

    But imagine the thousands of folk who don’t know the difference? It’s like candy from a baby sadly.

    It is obviously very unprofessional phishing mail and it is good to report it to the Apple on mail

    reportphishing@apple.com




    EDIT:

    Sorry for double posting, in the meantime, @johannnn wrote the same thing, which is essential for all Apple community :)
