I received this message last night which appears to be from the Google Adsense Team but is really from orientcasinos.com and designed to grab your adsense account information. The verify information link found in the email looks like it will take you to Google, but in fact, it takes you to orientcasinos.com – be careful!
Here is the email below

As you may know, a publisher’s site may not have invalid clicks or impressions on any ad(s), including but not limited to clicks and/or impressions generated by:

– a publisher altering any portion of the ad code or changing the layout, behavior, targeting, or delivery of ads for any reason
These or any other such activities that violate Google AdSense Terms and Conditions and program polices may have led us to disable your account. The Terms and Conditions and program polices can be viewed at:
