MobileMe users hit with phishing scam, again

Phishing e-mail targets MobileMe users and prompts for credit card information. The scam is similar to one that was discovered in August.


MobileMe users are being targeted by a phishing scam.

Users of MobileMe, which automatically sends e-mail, contacts, and calendar events to your computer, iPhone, or iPod, have been receiving a new e-mail that looks like it comes from Apple. It warns that attempts to renew the MobileMe subscription have failed because of a problem with charging the credit card and prompts the recipient to log in and update information on a site that looks legitimate but is not, Macworld reported on Wednesday.

A similar phishing scam targeting MobileMe users was discovered in August, according to Macworld.

Tips for MobileMe users and anyone who does any transactions online include never clicking on links in an e-mail that prompt for financial information and looking for the "https" in the Web address for more secure communication with sites.
