It's been a while since I'd gotten a good SPAM. But his came the other day.
It's from "Apple <Support@paypol.securnet>
Why "paypol?" Are the spammers worried about PayPal suing them over copyright infringement?
(So that would be SPAM hint #1.)
It's addressed to "Dear,"
(So that would be SPAM hint #2.)
When you hover over either "Verify Now" and "My Apple ID," the URL resolves to http://www.dopropriobolso.com.br/images/stories/2014/ree.php/
(So that would be SPAM hint #3.)
I have no idea who this website is. If I had to guess, this probably isn't a site which will load malware; they're probably just trying to nab your Apple credentials. The top-level domain .br means it's Brazil.
I won't even go into "Extend our this request."
Remember, when in doubt, stop and think.
And then, still don't click.
Be safe out there, cyber-surfers.
