    How did someone use my Apple ID ? 15th Jun 17 at 9:54 AM
    I was emailed by Apple that someone with a strange username had signed into my account with an ipod (which I do not own) and that they were suspicious that it was fraudulent. It was so I went to my account (not via the email just incase) and changed my password. But my main concern is how did someone else get my email, and more importantly my password to sign into my account ? I checked the email was legit which it was as they addressed it to my name, not just "dear customer" or something like these scams use.

    It came through on my gmail account which I retrieved on my ipad. My Gmail account is also hooked up to windows live.

    Was sent by Gmail, they are only ISP using 10 subnet which is supposed to be for internal networks only, typical Google, think they can do what they want and mess things up for others.
