How can you tell that you have a deal with hackers? Pay attention to the non-Apple email address and generic language. Besides, you can clearly see spelling mistakes in “Apple” name and also feel the sense of urgency.
If you have also received this “Account suspended” scam from firstname.lastname@example.org or other email, please delete the mail and never click on the link, which can be found in it. If you’ve clicked on it, scan your device with reliable anti-spyware.
