Gmail account verification emails are fake


Over the past few months i have been receiving numerous emails that declare themselves to be from Gmail office and are demanding account details so that my account doesn't get suspended or canceled.They came from email accounts like acctaccess.verifying@gmail.com ,verify.finishacct@gmail.com and a few more.I had suspicion that this was not from Gmail as they don't usually does send such messages or verifications.I never replied thank god.

The emails look like this

I would recommend my readers and friends not to respond to such fake emails that are used to hack into our accounts.Don't reply and save yourself from the trap.Google never sends emails to verify account.


The best thing to do is to mark this as spam and hope that google sees it and blocks these accounts as soon as possible.Google are you listening?
