@NAT - Alert: ‘Request to Terminate Your Google Account’ Scam Email
According to this email, which purports to be from Gmail Account Services, your request to terminate your Google Account has been accepted. It asks that you reply to the email if you wish to cancel the termination request or get further help. The message warns that, if you do not cancel the termination request, all of your emails will be deleted and account access will then be denied. However, the email is not from Google and the claim that your Google Account is about to be terminated is untrue. In fact, the email is a phishing scam designed to trick you into divulging your personal information to criminals.
