Have you tried your account (NB NOT using the link they said)?

I like to use big words which I don't really understand so it makes me look more photosynthesis!

I never follow links G, and I think an official text would have spelled safeguard correctly.

I just banned the number, and deleted it after doing the screenshot, I wouldn't know where to check my account anyway, didn't know I had one

Yes is it certainly a scam. I would not click on the link as is is highly likely to ask you to change your user settings/password. They than have access. The best think to do is to log into your Apple account as you would usually do and if you can, then your fear that the message is a scam is confirmed.

Whatever your thinking of doing. Do it now!
