With this trick you can steal your Apple iD from iMessage

It is no longer enough for us to try to take the hair via WhatsApp with rough scams , but not less dangerous. It seems to be reporting cases of a new form of phishing and affecting via iMessage, Apple's native messaging application.

To summarize, please take these warnings seriously and be sure to pass them on to all your friends most likely to be bulo cannon fodder . We present you the new iMessage scam. It is dangerous because this seems to steal the access credentials of the Apple ID . Just as you are reading it.

"Your AppleID expires today," the incoming text message reads. "Press [URL] to update and prevent loss of services and applications."

There are several warning signs that this is a scam, and those warning signs are obvious to experienced users. We are thinking of a text message from a user named "iMessage," the URL does not point to an Apple domain , and Applications is typed with capital letters, for some reason.

The problem is that while these things may be obvious to you, they are not for everyone. The more experienced smartphone users in particular, tend to fall victim to these scams more often. If you click the link, it will take you to a page where you are asked to enter your username or Apple ID . Needless to say, if you enter the most likely is that you lose your Apple ID with all that entails.

It is easy to ignore scams of this type, but remember that the main protection filter for this type of scam is common sense. Apple has a very clean way of acting with its users, and would not contact you by that means asking for your access credentials.

Did you get this message? How have you done? We would love to hear from you.
