today morning i got a wierd mail that says you can hack gmail easily

here is the body of the letter

********************************
hi friends,
  
By continuing on down this letter you agree that Hack_Attack69
will not be held responsible for any misuse of
information within these pages. This letter is purely for educational use.
If your intentions are similar proceed
but if not you will be held responsible
for your own mistakes Hello gmail users.
There have been many attempts to hack
gmail.com. Unfortunatly all of them have failed,
EXCEPT this one. I though have found out
a revolutionary way to hack gmail.
And might I add it's az easy az ABC.
After 8 months of research we have
found the broken link. AdminPassBot to be exact. AutoPassBot[put at-character here]gmail.com
is a bot, an auto bot.
You send it a letter and within a week it will
send you one back. The ULTIMATE hack for gmail is as follows:

First send a letter to adminpasster[put at-character here]gmail.com, second
within the Subject heading place the word "Password"
(not in quotes but has to have a capital P) this way
he automated bot recognizes what you are after. Then
in the text field place the name of the person at
gmail that you want to hack (Do not put @gmail.com
after their name). No capital letters are to be put in this place.
Then skip three (3) lines and place your own gmail account
information such as: My login:My password (a smeicolon
makes it easier for the bot to recognize). This way the bot
can verify that your account actually exists. And then supplies
   you with the password for the person's account that
you want it for. Here is an example:

To: adminpasster[put at-character here]gmail.com
bcc:
cc:
Subject: Password

login of the person you want to hack

  

yourlogin:yourpassword

Are you so gullible?

"place your own
gmail account information such as:
My login:My password "

This is just a scheme to get email addresses and passwords.

Yeah, give that spammer your credentials fast!
The ultimate hack for him ....
He was probably so smart to send this mail from the adress adminpasster[put at-character here]gmail.com too?

Nice try. I guess if someone wants to hack another account so badly that they'll give their own details out, well, they only have themselves to blame!

And something tells me that some Googler will be reading this and getting those accounts closed down very soon...

I've seen this stupid trick 5 years ago, when i was googling to hack hotmail... Even as 12 year-old, i didn't fall for it.. It really takes more than stupidity

Ohh. This is too funny. But know something, it works. Years back I played a prank on my friend like this and he came to me saying that now he knows how to hack email addresses.

This one is older than teh intrawebs itself ;)
I've seen it in various forms over the yrs targeting different providers (yahoo, hotmail, etc) I still think the return on it must be very low.....no-one is going to fall for that right!?

I don't understand why people want to hack email? Am I too naive? If spammers want to send spam from that address surely it would be easier just to email yourself invitations?

Not just for Spamming!

Scammers might think that you might have some confidential mail or something more important in your mail..

There are many users whom i know still don;t delete their bank password mails and so on.....

When you give out your google account and password ....

They still can access your other Google services

Thanks for clearing that up Sankar, I forgot about confidential emails. I don't seem to get any of them and anyway my bank would never email me my password – I would have to go into the bank to get it if I'd forgetten the ol' secret question (and I think rightly so).

who says it has to be for a scam? What about good ole voyeurism?

Gmail supports POP/SMTP. A valid Gmail account can send mail through smtp.gmail.com. A spammer who has your Gmail account can spam from your gmail address with significantly lower chances of being blocked.
