    Hello,
    I keep getting emails from Google Team saying that there is a notification from a person, always a different name identified as a Google Team member and that the email was unable to be delivered to me. Comes to my spam folder.
    Am I to report this type of email and where do I forward the emails to that I get to stop them?
    I am not able to identify if it is from the real thing or not and not sure how to know if Google Team is sending me emails? What is safe and how can I know for sure?
    Thank you.
    Laurie.

      Any email that appears to have been sent by Google requesting personal information or money is a fake. Google doesn't request personal information via email message and will never ask users to send money in order to claim a prize or promotion.

    I got an email from the gmail team (in my inbox, not spam) saying there had been suspicious activity on my account. It didn't ask for my password or anything, just my phone number, and provided the last two digits to identify it. Without thinking I replied back with my phone number, and it sent me a verification code. Then I googled "gmail team" and found this article...WHO CAN I TRUST????
