This has been a problem in the US for a long time. Sorry you are dealing with it also!
I haven't received anything like this on my gmail, but I have read a lot of information about this on other portals. Many people believe that such cyber attacks are needed by corporations for cover, because corporations monitor and collect information about you all this time. These are just rumors and guesses, but nevertheless, I advise you to really think about how to protect yourself from phishing. Identity theft via the Internet isn't single incident. On the portal, you can find a detailed description of how you can avoid leaking your personal data and protect yourself from phishing through your email.
I hear about these scams on a daily basis. I'm a computer tech. I've gotten them myself too. VERY VERY common! I've had a lot of clients scammed out of money. DON'T FALL FOR THEM!
