A webmaster who was unaware of spammers sending fake notices on Google's behalf, suffered for a short while when he received a fake message, reports a thread at Webmaster World.

The worried webmaster writes, "Yet they have sent me a message about one of my sites being removed from their index. The email comes with a link for a reinclusion request but when I go to that page I can only send them the form after ticking a box, stating that my site has indeed violated their guidelines in the past. Now, what nonsense is that? Don't they even give you a chance to claim innocence? The site in question is a one page German site where I have put together some information from the (English) main site of a customer. At present there are no funds to do a full translation but the site is meant to give a brief overview of their services to their prospective customers from Germany. The part that I especially don't understand is that there is supposed to be some kind of redirection from to which is not acccording to their guidelines. I don't have any redirections on that site. "

This was nothing but a fictitious mail from spammers, which has been occurring for a while like the case when Google Webmaster Central took a Beating in Germany!.

It should be known that Google has stopped sending penalty notification emails while they work on ways to provide more secure communication mechanisms".
