    I found an email in my spam box which said that two days ago I requested Google to delete my Gmail account but I NEVER asked for that. The email is from "[email protected] via inc60.fr"

    is this for real or is this a fake? I REALLY need to know because I've been looking for a job for a long time and my Gmail address in on the resumes. Thank you!!!

    I would say that it is fishing for your information and then get control of this email account.

    But I would forward it to [email protected], if you know how to get the header of this email, copy and paste it into the email before forwarding it.

    It is a phishing attempt to lure you into clicking a link that will take you to a very good looking site and sign in. I see them with Outlook.com / Outlook365 as well.

    Make sure you add protection to your login by using 2-Factor Authentication.

    thank you - I guessed that it was phone or else why would a real email from Google go into my spam box?

    Sorry but I don't know what 2-Factor Authentication means.
