Lost your iPhone? Be extra alert for upcoming identity theft attempts.

Joonas Kiminki got his iPhone stolen. Twelve days later, after immediately having marked it as lost in Find my iPhone, he got a text and email saying his iPhone was found with a link to see the phone’s location.

I of course rushed to the address on the link and then started typing my credentials, but then suddenly stopped. Something was just not right.

The mail and site look legit, but ain’t. When submitting the form your data is sent over to save.php, which the fraudsters then use to take a hold of your account:

Be warned.

This is what Apple should tell you when you lose your iPhone →
