Original article on the latest MobileMe phishing scheme circulating Inboxes:

If you are a user of Apple's popular MobileMe Web application and syncing utility, beware of a possible phishing attack headed to your inbox. The Unofficial Apple Weblog has reported that another phishing scam is on the loose, targeting MobileMe users.

These attacks mirror similar attempts that we reported on back in May and Ars Technica reported on in February of last year. TUAW is reporting that this version of the phishing attack is coming from the domain "Apple-bills.com" which of course is not a part of Apple's operation.

Apple handles all account information for MobileMe users through the me.com Web site. If you receive an email and think your account may need to be updated, do not respond to the email directly. Rather, log in to your account online to check things out. You can also contact MobileMe Live Chat Support with questions regarding your account.
