Message from G-Mail
I received this e-mail from G-Mail yesterday. As instructed, I immediately changed my password. Another e-mail, identical to this one came in on a second account. The third account, which I use for online purchases and signing in to Websites, did not receive this message. Has anyone else here ever had this happen? Neither of these two accounts are used for anything but personal e-mail for me and my husband. The time of both attempts to get into the accounts would have been around midnight where I live.
