<Anything that does not address you by name and / or account ID personally is FAKE.>
Date: June 17, 2017
Browser: Mozila <NOTE MISSPELLING>

If the information above looks familiar, you can disregard this email.
If you have not signed in to iCloud recently and believe someone may have accessed your account, go to Apple ID (https://appleid.apple.com) <the actual address is designed to ruin your day and is an infected server> and update your Account details soon as possible.

This is a very amateurish attempt to deceive you.

Always hover your cursor over any link in an email and look at the status bar at the bottom of the email window, which will tell you where the link really goes.

This is the actual address the “appleid… link goes to: wubblewe wubblewe wubblewe.hummingbirdgreenvillage.ca/security/id/

Whoever owns hummingbirdgreenvillage.ca has not properly secured their server and it has been hacked. Some very malicious code has been uploaded to the security/id directory and if you follow the link, you’re toast.

Don’t fall for these SCAMS

Name: Wizard

Short Bio: The Computer Wizard (TCW). TCW was founded by Warren P. Harris in 1994 to service and repair computers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Relocating the business to Plano, Texas in 1999, TCW continued to flourish when an unfortunate loss of data for a wedding Mr. Harris photographed, caused him to research data recovery options. Realizing he would have to either pay someone to recover the photos or find out how to do it himself, the rest, as they say "is history". Approached by a friend who was a Private Investigator in 2006, Mr. Harris studied for his Investigator's license and began honing his skills in Computer Forensics. The company was renamed DFW Computer Integration in 2015.
