    iTunes phishing Warning
    I've attached an e-mail I received recently that appears to be a phishing attempt focusing on my iTunes account. I've gotten these before in connection with PayPal, credit cards and other things but not iTunes. As you look at the pdf three things caught my attention immediately.

    The From field does not match anything Apple uses to communicate with me about iTunes.

    The To field refers to me as sroque at an account I never used for any iTunes account. As I scroll over that name it goes to an e-mail account that I have never used for personal/business correspondence.

    Apple has never, as far as I can remember referred to me as "client" in any e-mail. Nor do they "destroy accounts.

    Did you notice the bad English used in that email? Of course it just might be the NSA testing you to see what you'll say....

    That was the first thing my wife noticed. I wouldn't have even seen it if I hadn't been going through the spam folder before deleting a bunch of stuff. Every once in a while something important gets in there by accident.

    Thanks for sharing this scam...those phishermen aren't even good at what they do. Hopefully they won't get too many "bites".
