MacRumors has a useful heads up today regarding a new phishing scam that is currently doing the rounds and might be on its way to an email inbox near you! The scam was picked up by some MacRumors readers, who received an email (pictured above) that has been made to look like it comes from Apple. The email takes advantage of the forthcoming transition from MobileMe to iCloud, by asking members to “update” their MobileMe subscription to iCloud by clicking on the link provided. Should you click on the link you will be prompted to enter various personal details, including credit card details, Apple Store account details, and your address. As ever, I’m sure most of you wouldn’t be fooled by this for a minute, but it might be worth warning any of your less-savvy friends and relatives out there who might not realise that it’s a scam.
