The link in the phishing email message goes to a fake or phishing Google website, which will attempt to trick the potential victims into entering their usernames and passwords on it. If Google users attempt to sign into the phishing website with their usernames and passwords, it will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the email scam, who will use the information to hijack their accounts. The hijacked Google accounts will then be used by cybercriminals fraudulently.

      Just got this identical message yesterday (4/25/2018). It did land in my SPAM folder, but at one point yesterday morning all my email accounts starting shutting down. I restarted my browser and computer and nothing further happened.

    Thank you for this and well-needed reassurance. I just got this alert two days after I was changing my Google account settings and truly got tricked based on the coincidence alone. I sent a reply email and thank God it didn't go any further and I didn't provide personal details.
