Some Gmail users have reported that they receive notifications that they have either sent or received transfers using our service even though that is not the case.
This is due to the way Gmail works as one account which can be linked to several variants of the same email address. For example firstname.lastname@example.org is the actual account holder but if somebody was to enter the email address with the . in any other place, then these would still direct to the inbox of email@example.com:
The sender of the transfer may have accidentally typed a variant of your own email address instead of their own. Perhaps their email was firstname.lastname@example.org but added an extra letter and now you received the transfer instead!
There is little we can do to prevent this as we do not have knowledge if someone might have entered a typo but if you let our support team know, we can look into this for you!
You can read more about this in a dedicated Gmail article.
Keep in mind, this does not mean they are transferring your files or have any access to your email account.
