Had this one today. The site that the link takes you to is a newly registered domain (i.e. registered yesterday - 20th December!) There are various other indicators in the email that it's not genuine, not least of which is that the email address it mentioned is in no way connected with a Google ID!!!  Apart from that error and the spelling error it looks very convincing but is FAKE.
