Received in email today (NOT through Raoul's, but I'm arse-u-ming it's a China thing) the following:

This message is to
inform you that your Apple Account has been
temporarily locked until you can validate your Apple ID details on file.
This is a security measure to protect your iCloud Account from unapproved
use. We apologise for the inconvenience.

You won’t be able to access Apple services or the iTunes & App Store
until you verify your Apple Account ownership, we urge you to complete
validation as soon as possible. Failure to validate your details within a
24 hours can result in termination of your Apple/iCloud Account to
safeguard our system.

How do I validate my Apple
Account and unsuspended my Apple ID?
Just proceed to the
link below to verify your ID. Login in using your Apple ID and password,
then follow the prompts.
Validate My Apple/iCloud Account Details/Screw my life completely via being Phished

While using Apple
devices and web services, you’ll still login with your main e-mail
address as your Apple login.

If you have questions and need
support, please see the Apple ID Support site/Your Freindly Neightbourhood Phisher of Passwords.

Sincerely,
Apple UK Support



Watch your backs kids. Links in emails are not your friends.

ps. the blue text, in the actual email, is links - the words saying things about phishing, I added in to make clear what happens if you click.
