I'm sorry about the issue. A scammer can set up an email account with the same name, and with a similar email address, and/or the scammer can fake the email address. Everyone should always ignore any email message that is suspicious.
- Can you please ask your colleague to check the exact spelling of the "From" email address in that fake email message?
Please reply at the box below to continue. Thank you,
Also, are your other contacts also receiving email messages purportedly from you?
- And are you currently able to receive new email messages fine?
- Can you please check your Sent email folder to see if any strange email message is showing there?
- Can you please go to the Google website below:
, and sign in your gmail email account if shown
, then go to the section Device & activity & notifications -> Recently used devices, and see if it shows your correct device(s) / locations(s) you've been using for your google / gmail email account.
