Recently my eldest daughter left to university with a new MacBook that I had purchased for her. Soon after, she received a notice that her apple security had been violated. All of the notifications appeared to be from Apple, maintaining the same font and appearance of Apple messages. This particular pop-up noted that the issue could be resolved by providing her email; where she could click on a link and allow the tech to fix her laptop. Sadly, she agreed and all of a sudden her mouse and screen was being completely controlled by someone else across the world and they were asking for money.
