Introduction to the “Email Account Shutdown Request” scam
The “Email Account Shutdown Request” scam is a type of phishing scam that targets email users. The scammers send an email claiming to be from your email provider, such as Google or Yahoo, and inform you that your account will be shut down if you do not respond to the email. The email will often contain a link that takes you to a fake login page where you will be asked to enter your email address and password. Once you enter this information, the scammers will have access to your email account, and they can use it to send spam emails or steal your personal information.
