BEVERLY HILLS—The Beverly Hills Police Department is warning the public about a series of reports they have received of suspicious phone calls to residents by people claiming to represent themselves as Apple employees.
According to a press release from the BHPD, the caller inquires as to the residents Apple products and their user ID and passwords. Authorities are informing all residents to never divulge sensitive information over the phone, to unsolicited parties.
The scams are similar to various IRS scams that have occurred where the caller is attempting to obtain sensitive information (personal identifiers) about the resident. The BHP informs the public to:
-Never share your Apple ID password, verification code with anyone. Apple states that they will never ask you for this information to provide support.
-If you suspect that your Apple ID and/or password has been compromised, change your password immediately.
