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?

  • 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 Commented Jun 2, 2013 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.

    For search, please don't use images while you can simply copy/paste the text. Thanks.

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