Developer Account is under Review

Hello everyone,

I received a very unsettling email that my developer account is under review. Here's what the email says:

Developer Support <>
7:27 AM (11 hours ago)

to me 
This is a notification that your Google Play Publisher Console will be disabled.

REASONS FOR TERMINATION: Multiple violations of our Content Policy and Developer
Distribution Agreement.

Please is this from Google Play Support or not? Why the sending email not Google Play Support

    I don't think it's from Google. Because they used this email address Not only that, your account is under review and terminated because multiple violation and all of a sudden they want you to update your information?

    Sounds pretty fishy to me.
  • Thanks @dragon2o99, the title said under review, first line said account will be disabled and second line said reasons for terminations. Hope it's not from Google. The email contain some links but i didn't clicked any of them yet. Do you think it's safe to click any?

    Thanks once again.
  • I wouldn't click on any of the links. In doubt, forward that email to Google's support team and inquire about it. Personally, I think they're trying to gain access to your developer account. 
  • Thanks @draggon2o99 will not click any of the links. How do i forward that email to the Google Support team? Should i use their email that they use to notify me ? Anyways don't you think this might trigger something? Provided the email is not from them how about forgetting about it?

    Thanks again!
  • Ignore the email. This is phishing.
    Anyways, you can always check where the links would take you without following them.
  • I got a similar email as well. Never click on links like that!
  • Hi Abdulnasir,

    Yeah, you can just ignore it too. Like anteos and hendrixs says.. They're just phishing to get access to your developer account. 
  • Thank you all @ anteos, hendrixs & dragon2o99, 

    I hovered on the update link but the destination url is not showing. How about right clicking and copying the url to clipboard then paste it in a notepad? Yeah just to see where they want to take me. Anyways whether doing this is safe or not i'll simply delete the email now. Thank you all for your responses. I really appreciated.
