Phishers targeting Apple customers and iCloud upgraders

It was probably only a matter of time, but it seems that scammers are already trying to cash in on the MobileMe conversion to iCloud. An email is being sent around asking users to convert their accounts from MobileMe to iCloud by filling out an online form that looks like a pathetic attempt at an Apple website. The grammar in the email is also impeccable.

The link takes you through to a website. Don’t click, don’t update, and more importantly, don’t give it any of your information.

The email reads,

Dear MobileMe member,

Please sign up for iCloud and click the submit botton, you’ll be able to keep your old
email address and move your mail, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks to the new service.

Your subscription will be automatically extended through July 31, 2012, at no additional charge.
After that date, MobileMe will no longer be available.
