In the last 24 hours, I’ve just received 5 similar emails, claiming to be from Apple. I’m pretty sure they are not:

Apple

The giveaways:

1) My name is not on the email itself
2) It’s coming from odd email addresses
3) The email has a few odd grammar issues.

Apple

I guess they are harvesting our emails, from the developer contact info for each app in the iTunes App Store.

Has anyone else seen this? Let me know.

    No worries. I’ll guess they’ll try everything to scam people.

    I haven’t seen this either but anytime I get an email from sites that have my sensitive information like banking, paypal, etc I always login into the site directly. Never from an email.

    There are also similar emails saying that your itunes connect account has been disabled – and ask you to login to correct the problem.

    Best advice is NEVER respond to a request to login to any of your accounts via email. If you want to check. Close the email and login the normal way for the specific account .

    Second look at any suspicious message header if you are not sure – you can usually see that the email addresses are not legit or the server addresses are not valid.

    Simple check is to take the from server address in the message header and just google it. If it is spam or worse the location of the server will be somewhere outside north america. I have seen: Russian, South America, eastern europe africa and China in many cases.

    Yes. I have seen similar emails purporting to be from Google. Just deleted them.
