Phishing attack from "Apple (Suisse)"

Just had a blatant phishing email from "Apple (Suisse)" asking me to refresh my account as I had requested for it to be de-activated, with a rather suspicious link. Absolute bollocks. Beware peeps.

The most ridiculous thing about this scam, is the email address it originates from. An email from apple coming from a google address. Riiiiiiight...

Re: Phishing attack from "Apple (Suisse)"

The fact it consistently used a Cyrillic "ь" instead of "b" was a little bit of a clue .
