I have been getting some scary e-mails in my Gmail account. In addition, I have been receiving messages on my phone that unknown women are adding me to their circles. I'm not sure if I should be worried or not, I have already started a new e-mail address. I know Google gives your private information out like candy, so could it just be this? The first e-mail I got was from a woman who signed up with the same last name as me, and it was titled, "test test mother****er" and inside the message was "test". An attachment was also present, but I didn't open the message or the attachment. A while later, a woman who I don't even know added me to her circles. When I woke up this morning, I got an e-mail from the same woman as the first e-mail, the subject was "Weather for Tuesday (today)..." and it didn't appear to have anything in the body. A few hours later, another woman I don't know added me to her circle.

 

Is this something I should be worried about?
