Dear Valued Member,

According to our site policy you will have to confirm your account by the following link or else your account will be suspended within 24 hours for security reasons.

http://www.gmail.com/confirm.php?email=*****@gmail.com

Thank you for your attention to this question. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Sincerely,Gmail Security Department Assistant.

If you recieve this in your Gmail inbox... DO NOT CLICK THE LINK. It is a phishing scam. I haven't gotten this in any of my boxes yet (which is why the address is *****), but I know people who have. If you look in the headers of the message, you will see:
Received: from motgate2.mot.com (motgate2.mot.com [144.189.100.101]) (which is obviously NOT gmail) and href="http://209.67.220.164/confirm.php?email=*****@gmail.com (which is also obviously NOT gmail).

You have been warned.

I don't think so. This one is just a 'phisher'. There is no attachment or anything.

Thanks for the warning... I'm not entirely sure I wouldn't have fallen for that one. :eek:

I'm sure we have all recieved similar emails from "fake" paypal asking for verification on your credit card information.

It was only a matter of time until they started to attack Gmail users.

Well I've been using GMail for quite some time now, and never had any problems or such. I basically know what kind of mail that goes into my GMail, so I don't think I would have fell for this thing, especially for the length of time I've been using GMail.
