youtube sending malicious emails


May 1, 2012
i'm getting emails from youtube saying that "*insert name here* has sent you a message". the messages are spam, and they look something like this: "Hi Alex this is the girl you were talking with at the restaurant! My profile on the website I was telling you about is this <Mod Edit>

Please message me there asap to get this thing going!!"

the messages look as if they were sent by youtube, but they don't have the same structure as the ones i get when my comments get replied for instance. i have not pressed any link. i got one last week, one yesterday and 3 today.
please help
