Scam Watch: Found IPhone Scam

My phone was stolen recently. Shortly after disabling it with the 'Find My iPhone' app, I received a convincing email claiming it had been found. The email correctly listed the model and colour of my phone. It also named the location where it had been discovered, which was near my home. This looked like a genuine Apple email, and the domain was icloud.com. It prompts you to click a link to find the exact location of the phone. I logged onto a live chat with Apple staff, who confirmed this was a phishing message. I've since got several similar messages.
