Another Day, Another Apple ID Phish

The author of the phishing email below went to some effort in the design department; not so much in the English department. Even so, the tenor of the message seems dire to the unaware. That could lead the recipient to click on the Verify Your Account button, whose URL is to a bit.ly URL shortener address — always a sign of no goodness in this type of message. URL shorteners, such as bit.ly have their place, but not here. Apple would never utilize such a service.
