Google Warning: Verify Your Information or Account Suspension (Scam)

This is too ridiculous. Haha. I received an stupid scam, obviously. Why? Please read the content of the email as stated below first. 
From: Gmail (mailboxdata@gmail.com)
Sent: Wed, 5 January, 2011 12:28:38
Subject: Google Warning

Due to anonymous registration of our email service, We have come to realize that your account information on our database system are out of date, as a result of that we require you to verify your Information. Failure to verify your information will result in account suspension.


Note: This warning is only for Google members, your account will not be interrupted after providing the above information and your email service will continue to work as normal.

Thank you for using Gmail
After that, you might need to read what I have mentioned before about "8 ways to verify spam email & avoid cheating " post in Xaivier Blog.

In short, I would like to highlight few points that can immediately help you to ignore this kind of scam email.

1. Do you see your email address in the email? Answer: NO

2. Do you think that Google will use mailboxdata@gmail.com as its email address? Come on. Anyone also can register this email account. So, the answer is: NO

3. Do you think Google people will do this kind of action? Sending an email for verification? Logically speaking, who knows your data is out-of-data or not. Besides, is it your birthday changed from time to time? If it does, what you need to do is just sign in your gmail account directly. Google people are not free to do this kind of task manually. Therefore, let's give this scammer a big NO NO.

That's all for today. Feel free to give me a comment about this topic or any suggestion about Xaivier Blog. It will be a great support to Xaivier Blog.
