I have got this email earlier which asked me that I have requested t change the password of my FB account which I didn't.

I refused the request for that and haven't changed the password of my Gmail or Facebook account, but I'm little worried about safety of my account.

What should I do in this situation?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Could you open it in the 'full' gmail webpage and see the original source? this should tell you the real e mail address sent from. Its probably an attempt to phish you and is best ignored, deleted and sent to /dev/null – Journeyman Geek Jun 2 '13 at 2:00
I had checked that on webpage and checked original source of that sent from FB and I refused it. The same email address which i get on my email address before. – avirk Jun 2 '13 at 2:07
Have you clicked the "let us know immedately" link? – gronostaj Jun 2 '13 at 6:35
For search, please don't use images while you can simply copy/paste the text. Thanks. – Arjan Jun 2 '13 at 7:25
@gronostaj yep I Did and after that now I've changed password for both accounts. – avirk Jun 2 '13 at 9:25

It looks to be a phishing scheme. As long as you did not click on any of the links, you should be fine.
