Yesterday I got a fraudulent email warning me that my MobileMe account was expiring soon, to check my account phone number and credit card information. The email uses actual Apple MobileMe art so it looks very official, while it is as fraudulent as a 3 dollar bill. I remembered current MobileMe accounts were grandfathered in until next summer so the email alarmed me, as I seemed to remember renewal in December.


Just a reminder to renew your MobileMe subscription by July 10, 2011 PDT to avoid interruption of service.

Did you resently change you credit card or phone number?To renew your service, log in to MobileMe, And click Account Options.Then click the Login box for your subscription. When you’re done, click Billing Info and make sure your credit card information is up to date. It takes only a few minutes, and your credit card won’t be charged until the day before your renewal date.

Thanks for being a MobileMe subscriber. We’re looking forward to another great year. .

One tiny clue is that “recently” is mis-spelled in the email. You click on the log in link and it opens a browser window with a dramatic “ACCOUNT SUSPENDED” line at the top.

If you get an email that seems to be from Apple demanding money for MobileMe you know to ignore it!
