  1. Thanks for sharing. You are right about Gmail or any other companies would NEVER ask their users to provide them with their login information because in the first place, they have it on their database! haha Besides, anyone could create an account with Gmail and this email doesn't look like some really legit email from the Gmail team. Good one!
