    Didn't know where to post this so please move or delete if I am incorrect.

    Was recently apart of a group buy for the digital sputniks. just got an email from kaur@digitalsputnik.com stating "Kaur ****** has invited you to view the following document" then it gives me the option to click an "open in docs" button. when clicking on it, the screen shown in the photo popped up asking for my permission to grant it access for google docs to use my gmail account. now, notice the email address of the creator of "google docs" this doesnt seem to be official and seems to me that kaur has had his email compromised. If you get one of these emails, I suggest not opening it until we can get some clarification.

    noticed photo is not legible on here.

    says the creator of google docs that is asking for permission to have control of my google account is "eugene.pupov@gmail.com"

    when opening a google doc, I've never remembered having to grant google doc permission to have control of my account, and I really don't think the creator of google docs would have this email. Kaur, if you're here please chime in on the legitimacy of this email.


    EDITED TO ADD: For those who have opened anything like this you can go to your google settings page and delete authorization for apps etc... I suggest you do that right now!

    This is a part of a HUGE phishing scam happening right now. Definitely don't open, it'll compromise your account.
