New iPhone phishing scam asks for your Apple ID and credit card credentials

MIAMI (WSVN) — Heads up iPhone users! There’s a new phishing scam that will ask you for your Apple ID and banking credentials.

According to The Independent, some users are receiving an unsolicited text message which claims to come from Apple. The message urges users to immediately change their Apple ID password before it expires.

The link then takes you to a page that looks authentic but is in fact a scam. The page asks for your username and password. Once it’s entered, it says your account has been locked for "security reasons" followed by boxes to enter your personal information along with credit card info.

Apple said they will never ask for this information via email or text message. Apple has provided a web page with more information on how to avoid getting phished by scammers.
