Something Phishy For MobileMe Customers

And the hits just keep on comin' for Apple and its MobileMe customers. Ever since the launch of the new iPhone 3G last month, there has been a spate of outages for MobileMe users.

The good news: MobileMe seems to have stablized for now (after becoming priority one in the eyes of the black turtle-necked one: CEO Steve Jobs).

The bad news: phishing attacks. Word is, some MobileMe customers are receiving bogus e-mails claiming their recent subscription charge didn't process correctly and to please click through a couple of links to update billing information.

Here's a picture of what the e-mail looks like courtesy one MobileMe user's Flickr account. Note: I say picture. It's a pretty slick e-mail looking pretty credible.

As always, anytime you get an e-mail asking for personal information, especially financial information, chances are its phishing scam (or a company that is clueless when it comes to customer service).
