Do not open or click on this attachment content user.pdf file and don't click on the link where it says to "Click here to verify your account" it is a scam and a fraud, it fooled me and I clicked on the link and now I can not login to my gmail account because when you click on the link it will send the hackers your email address and password if you click on the link when login to your gmail account. The email is a fake gmail claiming that your Google Account security information needs to be update or your email account and therefore we will be closing your email accounts to enable the web. From there, the email appears to direct hosting from arvixe.com the email recipient to the email account is scam and here is that scam email "ej8442@kolumbus.fi" but actually directs them to an outside link. and that url is http://prosse.concrete5.arvixe.com/verificar/services/account/ServicesLogin.htm This email is fraudulent and does not originate from Google. The email attachment is pdf and link are malicious. Do not open or click them. Clicking this link will cause the fake website to open in the user's browser. ... their computer, either by opening an email attachment or downloading the trojan from a website called arvixe.com. The majority of people who receive these scam emails will probably not even be customers of the targeted institution. The best thing is to report them to Complaints Bureau to warn others about there scam and fraud.... Content appears genuine
