There is a new apple id phishing scam making the internet rounds over the last few days.
Be careful out there!
Over the past several days, TUAW has received a number of emails from readers noting that there is a phishing scam going around. In case you're not familiar with phishing, it's a way for devious types to get access to your user ID and password for an account -- in this particular case, your Apple ID -- so that they can then go in and rack up big charges. Even worse, since many people use the same email and password for multiple accounts, this can open the door to all sorts of nefarious action.
Phishing is done by sending out emails that look like they are from a trusted source (here, it's Apple), often saying an account has some issues and asking you to click on a link in the email to log in and correct those issues.
