They would have gotten me

by Volker Weber

As far as I know, this was the first time I was targeted personally by an attempted identity theft. The scammer did very many things very right and nearly got me to give up my account details. Maybe if I’d read the email before looking at the SMS (in which the strange address was a bit more prominent), they would’ve gotten me.

Scary story. iPhone gets stolen. Thief tries to steal Apple ID as well.
