Anyone else got one of these last night:

I was immediately suspicious and the characters at the bottom were odd. Also the reply address of was one that I have never seen Apple use.

I clicked on the link and it did not load. I am guessing that Apple was able to block it.

As a precaution, I logged into and went to settings and everything appears ok.

Now that I got a job, I can buy more Apple products!

Never click links in an email. Always navigate directly to the site yourself. If you must, copy and paste the address in the address bar of your browser.

Thanks for the head's up. I just sent this info to my two friends who I know are MobileMe subscribers.

FWIW, I've not received anything like this from them. I have received something alerting me that the galleries are going to be restructured and that anything I have from the old "Homepage" feature at .Mac will be lost, and that I need to move it. But that didn't require anything involving my credit card or "updating my account" on that particular front (money, etc.).
OK Mr. Sunshine!

Good to know. Thanks for posting!

I have not received anything like this yet but I will be on the lookout for it.
