The leaked celebrity photos may not have been hacked after all – they may have been phished!

The FBI are looking into whether Kate Upton, Jennifer Lawrence, and Lea Michele were prime targets of phishing.

Here's how it works ... you get an email informing you there's some sort of problem with your account, and in order to fix it you'll need to reply you’re your personal info -- such as a username, phone number, credit card, or even a password. So, you unwittingly give the crooks all they need to jack your data.

The email sent to the celebs might have been doctored up to look like it was coming from Apple.
