    I received one this morning. If you have a gmail account click the arrow down on the right and report it as phishing. That is all you can do.

    I receive these messages every day, sometimes several a day. They come from 'ghost' email addresses that have nothing to do with Google.

    The annoyance is minimal. All I do is delete them.

    I have never clicked on any of the links in the message.

    There is no way that I know of to block the messages as the sender address changes every time.
