Just got the dreaded email about ads being suspended due to not following guide lines etc.

Upon closer examination it turned out to be spam/scam.
If you get one of these don't be clicking any links in the email and just use your browser to log in to your cp to double check.

My question is, is it possible to forward it to adsense team that deals with this kind of thing?

The email address for such reports is often spoof@ or abuse@ the company. Maybe look around for such a Google address. Yes, I think it's possible they might want to know about it. eBay, PayPal, and banks appreciate such reports. Google might, too.

Here is the form to report phishing alerts.

The link displays AdWords but, it is for all Google related services.

[adwords.google.com...]
