I got a fraud alert from Firefox when entering in personal information...did the personal information go through, or did Firefox stop it?

I got a fraud email from "Apple" saying that my Apple ID had been used to make a charge on my account, from Russia, and I needed to confirm some information to delete the charge.

Like a dummy, I entered in my personal information. When I clicked done, I got a webpage in my Firefox browser saying that it was a fraudulent website and chose the option to "Get me out of here!"

I'm wondering if my personal information actually went through, or if Firefox stopped it because that was a known fraudulent site?

It's possible that the information went through (and BTW, Apple would never send you an e-mail like the one that you sent, that's an easy scam to identify).

To be safe, change any passwords associated with any accounts you have that could have been compromised due to this. Apple ID, E-mail, etc.

Hi Tyler,

Yes, I should have known better.

How would my info have gone through? I entered in my info, then pressed their "button" and the next page I got was Firefox's warning page.

It was more information than Apple ID, etc. It was social security, etc.! So, I'm really trying to figure this out...already filed a fraud alert on my credit report. Is there any way to tell from Firefox history, or something, if that information went through?

Thank you, Melanie

Since Firefox blocked the website, your information is safe. Firefox identifies the website before sending/receiving information.

That is wonderful news. Firefox rocks!

Sorry, I wouldn't as confidant that the information didn't go through as SuperSleuth is. I agree with Tyler that "it is possible" the information went through.

Sigh.

Is there any way to determine if it did or not?

I'm attaching screenshots of the webpage (including the button that I pushed), and I have the URL too if that is helpful.

If Firefox doesn't block websites before data can be transferred, is there any way to know what was sent? I don't know how data is split up into packets, but at the very least the data would be incomplete. Now I'm just confused and a little guilty for giving false hope.

Contact Apple immediately! Don't hesitate any longer!

Sorry, I can't tell you if there is anyway that you can find out definitively whether that information was sent or not.
