Recipients of the "Gmail Support Sent you a Message" email below are asked not to click the links in it. This is because the email is a phishing scam created by cybercriminals to steal their potential victims' email account credentials. The links in the fake email go to a phishing website that will ask visitors to sign in. If the visitors attempt to sign-in, their account credentials (username and password) will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the scam. The cybercriminals will then use the stolen credentials to gain access to their potential victims' accounts, hijack and use them fraudulently.
