Has my Gmail been hacked?

Episode 1559 (1:28:03)

Jim from Birmingham, AL
Email

Jim got an email from Google that stated he had put in a request to terminate his account, which is something he never asked for. Leo suspects this is a phishing attempt. He should hover over the URL for the link they offer to contact them and see if it's legit. Chances are, it isn't.

ScooterX in the chatroom says that HoaxSlayer lists it as a phishing scam, designed to trick people into revealing their username and password for thieves. He can also verify his Google status by going to myaccount.google.com. He can also download everything from Google using Google TakeOut, just in case.
