[ARCHIVED] Community Alert: Apple iCloud Telephone Phishing Scam


The Bensenville Police Department would like to alert the community to a telephone Phishing Scam that has been brought to our attention from a resident who recently received such a call.  If you get a phone call claiming to be from Apple warning of an iCloud breach, beware: It's a trick.

Telephone scammers are calling people and claiming that their iCloud has been hacked.  In many cases, the caller ID will say Apple Inc.  The caller will ask for your account details to gain access to your account.

Remember: Do not give out personal information and passwords.  Legitimate companies will not ask you for your passwords.  They have the ability to reset your account without them.

Alerta para la comunidad:

El Departamento de Policía de Bensenville desea informar a la comunidad sobre un  engaño telefónico que nos ha llamado la atención de un residente que recientemente recibió tal llamada. Si Ud. recibe una llamada telefónica donde la identificación telefónica dice APPLE le está llamando, y le dicen de una infracción de su cuenta iCloud, tenga cuidado: es un truco.

Los estafadores telefónicos están llamando a personas, alegando que su cuenta iCloud ha sido pirateado. El identificador de llamadas en muchos casos dirá APPLE INC., Ellos le pedirán que des los detalles de su cuenta para ayudarlos a proteger su cuenta.

Recuerde: NO proporcione información personal y contraseñas. Las compañías legítimas no le pedirán contraseñas, ya que tendrán la capacidad de restablecer su cuenta sin ellas.
