    Today I woke up, checked my emails and got this
    [​IMG]

    What is going on?. It was my secondary email account that I use every day. They gave no reason and there is no way to recover the account.
    Apparently many people had this problem today,

    Thing is, my account is still active (I can login to gmail), however how can it be that the email is really sent from google?

    Anyone else got hit by this?

    Since the account is still active and no reason provided, no clue.
    The only thing is that I can't reset password as I get that error that account was deleted.

    It's not just me, if it's a mistake many people were affected.

    I'm assuming you're the one who posted in the Gmail forums recently. A TC in there said they are escalating, so be patient.

    I got this type of message 20x

    Reason account un-active.

    Yeah, before I do fiverr, creating 20 emails
    All forward to my main gmail account.

    So those 20 emails now un-active due to I no longer play fiverr using that account (since got banned).

    OP mentioned he logged into the acc every day, so it cannot be considered inactive for sure

    so unless he was fucking with Google from his home ip (while logged into his Google acc), it must be a glitch of some sort, but it doesn't seem to be a new issue, it's there since years, as i read, sometimes you got the acc back, sometimes don't, no consistency

    this is one of my biggest fears, although i fuck with anybody but Google :)

    I'm still not sure what happened. The only email about this is on my backup account and I can still login to the "deleted" gmail account.
    It only says my account is deleted if I try to recover the password http://prntscr.com/7w8ghz

    Very weird glitch. I hope it won't happen to my main account, if it does I'll say good bye to google.

    nah, it's not a fake email, the issue is real, although it must be a glitch, the mail comes from Google (there should be this little key symbol next to the sender), apparently this happening since years to people randomly, if you search on Google with the error message, you'll see, people are getting hit with this left and right, one explanation is being the address inactive, but it's not the situation here or with every case, somebody on the Google forums is lending a helping hand and help getting the accs back

    I think it's IP issue.

    All my gmail that I bought through fiverr now receive that message.

    Except my other gmail that I create using my own computer (manual)
