I have just received an SMS as follows. Starting with my name and surname.

MY NAME, due to multiple attempts to log into your iCloud account you must verify your information here to unlock your account.

Then in blue "Tap to load preview"

Pretty sure it's a scam. Has anyone else seen this?

I know that there are phishing emails to get people's Apple account details, but with this one having my name and phone number seems a bit weird.

Can't see a sender's number, just the letter i

If you can log into your account as usual, block the sender and delete the message.
