MobileMe Phishing Scam Round 2

Not long ago we brought to your attention a phishing scam that was going around to some MobileMe customers, we then reported that Apple addressed the scam in their MobileMe blog. Well Apple Insider is now reporting that round 2 is just begining.

In this latest scam, an email is going around that says there are some issues with the users subscription renewal information. It then goes on to direct them to a link to update their credit card information. You can see the exact email that MobileMe customers are receiving below. Notice there is not a single MobileMe logo?

If in any doubt, pick up a phone and call Apple (or your credit card company) directly.
