Text of phishing email:

Dear Gmail Account User,

Due to the congestion in our Gmail database, We will be shutting down all unused accounts before on the 30th of June. You will have to re-confirm your account as soon as possible to enable us upgrade your account before the deadline date.
To confirm your account kindly fill the account verification form.

After Following the instructions in the sheet, your account will not be interrupted and will continue as normal. Thanks for your attention to this request.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
Thanks & Regards,
Engineer.J.Williams
Upgrade Team Controller

Do NOT respond to this if you get it in Gmail or another account. It is NOT legitimate. For more information on phishing, go here please:
