Beware of "Gmail or Google Undeliverable Messages and Notifications" Phishing Scams

Google users, beware of fake Gmail or Google email messages (see below) disguised as notifications that appear as if they came from Google. Cybercriminals are sending out the fake or phishing email messages to random potential victims in an attempt to trick them into clicking on the links within the same email messages. The links in the fake messages go to phishing Google websites created by cybercriminals to steal their potential victims’ Google account credentials (usernames and passwords) by asking them to sign into the phishing/fake Google websites.

The phishing Google websites look exactly like the legitimate Google websites, which is why many Google users are being tricked into submitting their user names and passwords on the fake websites, thinking they are signing into the legitimate Google website.

Google or Gmail users who have already been tricked by the fake email messages, should change their Google password immediately, before their Google accounts are hijacked and use fraudulently by cybercriminals. Google or Gmail users should never click on a link to sign into their accounts. They should always go directly to www.gmail.com or accounts.google.com to sign into their accounts. Once they have signed in, they will be able to view notifications and other important messages, if there are any.using the method mentioned above is the best way to protect against phishing scams.

Also, Google users should enable to Google 2-Step Verification or Authentication, which will help prevent cybercriminals from gaining access to their accounts, even if their passwords have been stolen.to learn more about Google 2-Step Verification, please click here.

    So I have been getting a similar message except it says G has blocked delivery of sent message under the bulk spam mail. Goes on to say it is from so and so from google support. But, I am getting this message on my yahoo email account and not on my google account. Also, have been getting a notification message that my yahoo user id needs verification. This has been going on with the verification notification since the last changes yahoo just made. I assume now that that both of these are are fake. Am I correct?

      Yes. Both emails are fakes or phishing scams. Never click on the links in those email messages. Always go directly to your accounts and sign-in from there. If there is anything that you need to do, you will be notified after signing in.
