Google Email Scam?
Got the below in my gmail this afternoon...looks like spam/scam...what do you think? The request for password makes it suspicious to start...then, google actually asking people for action without omnipotently deleting accounts??

Its a phishing scam to get your login details.
No website you signed up on would email you to email them back your login details.
Yep it's a scam and I didn't get one on any of my 10+ accounts so they are not sending it to everyone like they said.
From which email adress got this mail sent? It's obviously phishing, but I wonder from where it was sent ;)
YEah, they spoofed an @google.com email....I'll see if I nuked this or just spam foldered it and will post if I still have it. I've gotten a few other varients of this one since then too...
phishing scam :S everyone is falling for that.
