As we all know there are many scams out there trying to get you to part with your sensitive account information, the latest one I have received is Pretending to be from Apple. There are a few things you can do to quickly identify if these are real or not, although in most cases they will be fake.
This is a copy of the email I received:
There are a couple of things to note from the above email, firstly the from address should give it away as Apple ID <email@example.com> is not likely to be an address that Apple would use to send from. Another thing to note would be the Update Your Account link, if you hover over this you can see instantly that this is not a URL that points to Apple but rather some random URL (See Image Below)
