I just received this message from the folks at AdSense:
We're sending this email to let you know that on Jan 28, 2014, the payments contact information associated with your Google AdSense account was changed.
Since I had made no changes, I was in kind of a hurry to drop things and run over there to see what was going on. Turns out, their interface has a new layout. Can you believe this?

Did you click on a link that was on that email ? Watch out, if the interface had a new layout for you, problably it's a scam ! Open a new broser window, TYPE the adress for google.com/adsense. and check again your name and password. CHANGE your password to a new one, and also check that nothing else has change, and the information there is YOUR info.

No, I visit AdSense through my GWT login, typed URLs, not links in emails. They had the same information in there that they have had for 10 years. Nothing but a new layout. To me, that is not the way you announce a new layout, trying to freak users out. They had a banner across the top telling me about how wonderful the improved new layout was. It makes no sense to word their notification that way.
