    Well , I thought putting this up would save some of you into being tricked to give away your google passwords.

    Just few minutes before i received this email :

    [​IMG]


    Well i felt disappointed , thought it was due to my multiple google accounts , and without thinking i clicked on that link , entered my google username and password , and it showed " account confirmed " which i thought lifted the suspension . I thought google just want to verify my account , and i did that , Then thank god , i read the reply-to email , and it was gooqle , not google .

    I immediately changed my password , and once again thanked god , from saving myslef to loose my most important google acount.

    So tell others ,warn everyone .
