I received last night an email pretending to come from Apple’s support.
But, it is badly made if you see it in an email client.
Dear Customer AppleID14028364ca

Wondering why you got this email?

However, the email looks pretty different if you see it on a mobile phone.
I guess that many people will ignore the address from Canada (especially if you are living in Canada).
However, when you click on the URL you see for a second the browser’s address bar and then you have the confirmation that you’re not on apple.com.
But, if you are not paying attention, you might very well miss that and you land on a page that looks very similar to Apple’s.
So, dear Apple users, be careful. Apple will never send you something like this.
