Twinkle's Facebook page - Scams and useful stuff
Click here to log in - No!!!Oh, it happens often. You get an email alerting you that something drastic will happen if you do not take some urgent action to save your account from impending doom – and it is about as true as saying that if you do not hop on your left leg 17 times IMMEDIATELY whilst spinning and whistling ‘Edelweiss’, the universe will implode. Your suspicions could have been raised by the fact that you have never had such an account with the company who is emailing you, or perhaps you do have an account with this company, but not associated with the email address that you received the alert to. Even if you think that the email is genuine and relevant, it is good practice to become deeply suspicious of all such clickable links, and instead of clicking on anything within an email, independently make your own way to your browser and enter the web address of the company in question to log in. Experienced scamsters can easily replicate the look of a genuine email, or an entire website, for that matter, leading you to unknowingly give away your log in details. This can lead to financial loss or data loss. Enjoy reading my little tips and warnings, but also you might find a few other useful things mixed in there as well……..be safe and sensible online. www.facebook.com/TwinkleTecIT – and please give it a ‘Like’ whilst you are there!

I think not.....

As ever, if you receive an email or text telling you that there is some sort of problem with your account, close it, and, if you actually do have an account with that company, go there via your own means, not via any link provided. In this case, apparently, your Apple account has been disabled. Open up a browser and go to www.me.com or www.icloud.com and log in with your Apple ID and password. You will soon know if there is a problem. But there very probably isn't.

This is a typical phishing scam, telling you that there is a problem with your Apple account, coming from a non-genuine email address, wanting to take you to a web page where you will be asked to fill in your financial details. There is a spelling mistake in this email (a typical error in such things) and also 'iTunes Inc' should really read 'Apple Inc'. Another typical feature is the sense of urgency it is trying to inject in order to make you panic - in this case, the link apparently 'expires' in 48 hours. If you get such an email, or anything similar claiming to be from Apple, please do forward it to them using reportphishing@apple.com

Apple have also provided a page that gives you information on what you would and would not expect from a genuine email from them.

Gmail users - be aware of scoundrels pretending to be someone they are not. But everyone needs to be careful about similar 'phishing' scams. As ever, it is best not to click on links in emails. If you really do have an account with a certain company, leave the email aside and go to their website by your normal method or by searching for their genuine web site address. Or, just give them a call if you are concerned, especially in the case of utility companies.
