I think I have just been caught into giving my login details in response to a phishing email purporting to come from Google. I have now changed my login details, but I wanted to warn others. We had a standard G notification that an ad had been disapproved with a link to log in. No ad is diapproved and I have informed google. Question is, they cannot get my credit card details since these are encrypted- what other harm could they have done - changed my ads? Any one have any bad experiences?

Get the headers form the email and see what mail server it was sent from, and work backwards from there. Expect to get dead ended quickly though as I bet the server is outside this country. If not, you're in real luck.

Theoretically it could be your competitor although unlikely, but rather someone who would use your account for "free" advertising, until revealed. Not sure about other reason why would one do something like that.
