Attention : Gmail Warning To All Member

I've been receiving this sort of spam email so many times now. If you come across with this email please ignore it. This kind of email was sent by internet scammer with the aim to steal your email's login and password. After which,  they will get into your email account and look for any other important login and passwords. Probably your paypal, alertpay, ebay or any other account related to money. After which, they will use the login and password to gain access to those accounts and transfer the money to their account if there is any. They probably will be able to find your credit card information/credit card details and use it to buy items online.

Below is the sample of the email. Please take note that Gmail will never send this kind of email to Gmail account holder.

Thanks for sharing. The tell-tale of this being a scam is the requirement for entering your password.
