Default WARNING: iTunes email is a fake

I received an email from MY email address to me stating I needed to update all of the information in my iTunes account or my account would be closed. I clicked on the link and got a very official looking page. But it ask for name, address, date-of-birth, credit cad info. and on and on.

This email did not look like an Apple email, so I called Apple. It turns out it is not from Apple. Someone is phishing.

If you receive this email I would not fill out the information. Call Apple.

You can forward the email to Apple at: Reportphishing@apple.com

got same email and fell for it to late. had to change credit card number as the one entered might have been compromised. Also had full scan done on computer to be sure nothing had been put on it... How stupid can I get!! It did look so official. I reported to Apple fraud unit.

It looks like this, they also come from banks, credit card providers, ISP and on and on. Better to contact the sender thru you normal access and stay away from strange emails.
