YouTube Account Upgrade Scam?

Spam is really getting out of control! This is one of the reasons why I don’t like Facebook although this post is based on what appears to be a fake YouTube email Facebook accounts get hacked all the time and some people have some very personal information on their Facebook accounts. Anyway this was the email I received from “YouTube” If you get one I highly recommend deleting it. I also highly recommend that you do not click on any of the links!

Fake YouTube Account Upgrade email

the “xxxxx” was me taking out my email address.

You created a YouTube account for [email protected], but haven’t completed the signup process. Complete your registration and upgrade your account by clicking the link below:

Once you’ve upgraded, you’ll be able to login to YouTube using the same account you use for all other Google sites.

Looks like a YouTube scam to me

Maybe this is not a scam but it sure looks like one. I’ve been receiving emails from friend’s accounts that have been hacked and spam emails from other social media sites. Personally I recommend not opening these emails and not clicking on any unfamiliar links.
