Hi you can try and finad the Message headers, Headers contain tracking information for an individual email, detailing the path a message took as it crossed mail servers.
Log in to Gmail
Open the message you'd like to view headers for.
Click the down arrow next to Reply, at the top of the message pane.
Select Show Original.
The full headers will appear in a new window., you then can check the originating IP address, this the supposed area where the address originated from there is a high chance that if the person is trying to scam you does not exist at the home address he has given you. now the above will not confirm that this person is genuine but if he has lied about something then do not trust those who lie to you and do not lie to those who trust you. good luck

Hello,

Being gmail is a free email service it is hard to tell. Most notable businesses would really see the need to register their own domain and have personalized email addresses from that to give their customers added trust.

Just remember, gmal is your friend. I did a google search on that email address and it doesn't come up with anything suspicious. It is very likely that if it is a scam, someone else would have been scammed as well and posted information on it to google for others to be aware.

There is no harm in emailing this address and just let them know your consern. Even ask for a phone number so you can talk to them in person about whatever business deal you want to do with them.

When they email back pay attention to how the emails are worded. Are they asking you to do things that are tipical of scams? Write money orders, money grams, give visa numbers... etc?

If they are honest and truely do want to do business with you, i'm sure they will be happy to speak with you over the phone and everything you ask of them will be with an "above board" friendly reply.

Hope this helps,

Chris

How can i have my same gmail acct from cell phone to laptop


Simply click the link below, click "Sign in" in the upper right hand corner and sign in using the same username and password you used to create the account on your phone. Gmail works on any platform with a browser so your laptop will have no issue as long as it is up to date.

recovery by email:
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/183726
Recovery email address You don't have to provide a recovery email address, but we strongly encourage you to. Once you've started using Google as a signed-in user, we'll use your recovery email address to communicate with you under the following circumstances:
  • We need to confirm your username after you create an address
  • You can't sign in to Google
  • You've forgotten your password
  • You're about to run out of storage space
  • We need to alert you to any unusual activity involving your address
If you use Gmail, you may have added a recovery email address to your account when you first signed up. If you don't use Gmail, your password recovery address is the email address you used to sign up for your account (for example:myusername@yahoo.com)
To change or add a recovery address:
  1. Go to your Google Account Settings page.
  2. Scroll down to the "Signing in" box.
  3. Click Recovery email.
  4. Add your recovery email address.
  5. Click Done.
Your recovery address should be an email address that you use regularly.


recovery by phone:
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/183728

Having a mobile phone number on your account is one of the easiest and most reliable ways to help keep your account safe and ensure that you can get back into your account if your account is taken over or you forget your password. Your mobile phone is a more secure identification method than your recovery email address or a security question because, unlike the other two, you have physical possession of your mobile phone.
Hackers target accounts without phones because they're easier targets. Add a phone and join hundreds of millions of other Google users who have helped stop hackers in their tracks.

To add a recovery phone number to your account:

  1. Go to your Google Account Settings page
  2. In the Personal info section, click Phone.
  3. In the Recovery phone section, click to add a recovery phone number if you don't have one yet.

Ways we will use your mobile phone number

We'll only use your mobile phone number to ensure the security of your account. Here are some ways we'll use it:
  • To challenge people when they try to take ownership of your account
  • To send you a verification code so you can get into your account if you ever lose access
  • To provide an alternate way for you to verify that you own an account
  • To help prevent people from getting into your account by guessing the answer to your security question
  • Optional: To alert you to possible threats to your account's security (for example, when your password is changed)

Ways we won't use your mobile phone number

Unless you make a specific request, we won't use your mobile phone number for anything other than protecting your account. For example, unless you tell us to, we'll never:
  • Sell your phone number to other companies or organizations
  • Call you for marketing purposes
  • Publish your phone number online

What type of phone you should use

You should use a mobile phone number so that you always have access to it. It's important that you can receive security alerts as soon as possible so that you can help keep your account safe.

I am trying to get into my Gmail acct on an Apple Chrome...is this impossible, in this age of computer communication?? Thanks


Yes it is! In Chrome just type www.gmail.com in the address bar at the top of the browser and press enter. This should bring up the Gmail sign in page. Enter your gmail email address and password.

Hope that helps!

Strange emails in gmail


Most likely someone you have sent an email to in the past has had their computer hacked, exposing your email address, and now your email address is on a distribution list.

Nothing you can really do about this but mark as spam and possibly set up a gmail filter with some consistent common feature in the subject or message to always send them to spam or trash.
