I was trying to log into my gmail account when it said "looks like your signing in from an unusual location" then asked me to do step 2 verification. The strange thing about it is that the phone number and security question they asked are not any that I have set up and I am also using the same computer and internet I use every day. Please help me understand this, anyone!

    It sounds like someone has been able to "steal" your account and use the security features against you. You should start with Google Account Recovery and see if you can get your account back. – ale Nov 15 '12 at 17:43
  • @AlEverett can you post that as an answer? – Rebecca Dessonville Nov 15 '12 at 23:00
  • It's not much of an answer but okay. – ale Nov 16 '12 at 1:53
