MacRumors is reporting that they have received tips over the past several weeks of emails floating around the internet which claim to be from Apple, and are structured very similarly to Apple promotional material. These emails are trying to suss information such as AppleIDs and other personal information, from unsuspecting readers.

The latest batch in fact, talks of the “iPhone 5”, and depicts several mock-up images that could be found floating around the net before the email was sent out. Links on the emails are obviously baited, such as the “Learn More” link. Behind these links, is presumably a malware executable.

If you’re reading this story here on iSource, you are likely a computer user who is competent enough to know these dangers. However, for the less computer-literate amongst us, you have been warned. There is no iPhone 5 coming this Friday, and it’s certainly not translucent.
