Beware Google/Gmail phishing attacks

If you get one of these in your email:
Subject: Account Deletion Notice - yourname@gmail.com - (CASE:KMMN312SDFS2DB8276DD1IU)
it's not real; it's a phishing attack. If you responded and filled out the form, change your password immediately.

Given that Google uses the same account id for multiple purposes, the phisher can do a lot more damage than just messing with your email if they get your password.
