Phishing Email Example: Your Apple ID was used to sign in to iCloud on an iPhone 4

This one is pretty convincing.   In case you're wondering, the address at the bottom in Luxembourg is the actual address Apple publishes for iTunes.   The clues here are the same as in most phishing scams, first of all the actual URL behind the links in the email, and even more than that the very fact that you're asked to click on a link in email and, once there, change your password to some account.   Simple rule: never do this.   If you're in doubt, contact the IT Service Desk at 725-HELP (650-725-4357) or submit a HelpSU request (copy paste this URL into your browser:  helpsu.stanford.edu).
