Uhhhh, no. Also did you check where the e-mail originated from?

Plus it's too colorful and it doesn't have the proper icon for gmail.

Yeah yeah, anyone can use the proper icon.

Also is this a form in the e-mail you received or is it a link in the e-mail that you have to go to?

If it's a link you go to, go there and fill out the info with a bunch of bull shiit (fake everything) and submit it. :p

Plain and simply it's a fake e-mail. I use Gmail and have never received anything even remotely similar.

Enter falsified information. And claim that you are a terrorist seeking a thermonuclear device and if they could work on Saturday that would be great, nkay. So we will start at our usual time.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
