Suspicious Email

I had an email purporting to be from the Google Adwords Team about my Account. I don't have an account. I can't rreport it as a phishing attempt I don't think as I haven't a URL available. I can't fill in that field on the phishing report and the system just gives me a 414 error withoutthat information correctly filled in.

 

What else can I do except write this? I'd like to report it somewhere

Hi Eddk, 

 

That sounds like a phishing email to me. We won't email you if you don't have an account. If you (or anybody else reading the thread) replied to a phishing email we would recommend that you run a full virus scan of your computer and change you online passwords. 

 

AdWords will never ask you you to confirm sensitive details by email. 

 

The phishin link that Hel_ipe gave you is the best step forward.
