Apple Scam
Hi Stomp, I would like to contribute my experience to help others to look out for digital scams.

The scammer did send me an email and a link to "unfroze" my account, and it is true that I changed phone recently and did not save my full details or credit card on my phone.

The email and website looked very well done with all the high resolution latest iphone posters that anyone would easily fall for it (they even include real address in email!) So I did a little investigation : (Suddenly became a sherlock)

1. The URL link : www.appleid-privacy.net/identity/login looks unreal
2. The other options on the website can not be clicked
3. The info request for Credit Card info and CCV

I have checked google that this email address has not been found relating to anyone commenting the scam.
I have also submitted the experience to Scam Alert website,
I am not working for Apple nor promoting anything,
just hope to share this out so that more people can protect their hard earned money.
