Latest scam targets Apple device users

(WAFB) - Apple device users are being targeted in the latest phishing scam, according to AppleInsider.

The incoming call is disguised as an Apple real support phone number.

Scam victims reported receiving a message from a robodialer, saying their online ID has been compromised.

They were then asked to respond to a “1-866” number in order to speak to an Apple representative regarding their online ID.

The incoming call is shown as “Apple Inc.” and the number as 1-800-MY-APPLE, just like AppleCare, when checking the iOS Phone app.
