Well they can try!

It’s yet another day and yes another day where I relentlessly receive email spam.  9 out of 10 times my outlook account is catching this spam, but do you really know what you’re looking at?  Today I received this email.  It looks valid, but if I didn’t know better I might even had clicked the link to validate my account.

No I’m not daft and I didn’t click the link, why?  Well I hovered over it and noticed that it was taking me here

** WARNING DO NOT VISIT THIS LINK ** [in fact i’ve changed some of the chars]

You can clearly see this isn’t an Apple email, it’s just someone trying a phishing scam.  If you receive an email like this, and it contains links for you to click, hover over it, see if it’s a link to the actual companies site.  If it’s not and your spam filter hasn’t picked up on it, then delete the sucker.
