I have been receiving fake "Your Account Will Be Closed In 24 Hours" emails like the one below for the past 2 weeks. The fake emails have a link in them that goes to a fake or phishing Gmail website. Once on the website, I am asked to sign-in in order to view the so-called deferred emails. But, I know if I attempt to sign-in, my Gmail account credentials will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the fake emails.
