iPhone scam emails begin

iPhone scam imageDidn’t take long? For some time now, people have been snapping up iPhone related websites, and now (Monday morning) my work account has received 3 iPhone scam emails.

The emails have the subject line “Congratulations, you have won a new iPhone from Apple.com!”

They actually look slightly legit. Apple always sends out their emails as a large graphic file, akin to a print advertisement. This spam email has the same graphic as a legitimate apple email does, promoting the iPhone. All links, of course, are routed through an IP address.

Remember, if an email tells you that you’ve won something, its pretty much certain to be a scam. No Virginia, you cannot win a contest you never entered.
