Beware! IPhone Apple ID text msg request is a phishing scam

Woken at midnight last night by text message from another mobile device with 07... number. Request for me to verify my Apple id for my iPhone.

Thing is, my phone's an android & I don't have an Apple id.

On reading the link contained in the text message this morning I noticed ". ro " was part of the link. ". ro " indicates that the website is in Romania.

If you get a text message like this then don't 'click' on the link.

would've . . . could've . . . should've . . .

There's definitely no 'a' in 'definitely'.
