Normally the alerts from Google are pretty genuine but to be on the safe side, log in to your Google account and change your password. Don't do it via the embedded link in the email though
Thanks very much. However, Google doesn't show any recent security alerts on my account?
This is why I feel it's a scam?
If Google isn't showing anything, it's probably spam but I'd change my password just to be on the safe side. Especially if you have an Android phone
Personally, I'm pretty sure that the answer to you question is Yes it's spam, but better safe than sorry.
If your passwords are stored in Chrome then click the three dots in the top right hand corner, click settings, passwords, and then Check Passwords. That will tell you if your password has been compromised.
I think Firefox does the same but I'm not familiar with it
