Apple Phishing emails

With today being "buy an Apple phone" day it should not be surprising that there are already some phishing emails going around to try and take advantage of the publicity.  

Jan sent this in this morning (thanks):

A variation on the many phishing emails we see regularly, just taking advantage of two public events, the celebrity photos and the release of the new phone.

Maybe a reminder to staff as well as friends and family to ignore emails that say "click here"

Happy buying a phone day or if not phonically inclined, happy talk like a pirate day, or just plain enjoy your Friday.
