got the following email and when i click the link it goes to a page which appears to be google and shows a balance in my account i dont remember ever using google pay or getting a refund as i assume that is why i would have a balance
however the page does include the details of my payment methods with the last 4 numbers of cards including expered cards
scam or real?

If it's too good to be true it normally is
I'm still waiting for a little China man to put 25 million dollars into my account apparently I'm owed it

I got the same email from Google saying Google pay is closing and if you have a positive balance it can be transfered to your registered bank account.
I don't think you will have to enter any bank details as it is done automatically by what they have on record when you log in to your Google pay account.
I don't have a balance so that's all the info I got.
The email does appear to come from Google when you click details in the sender section.

If you have any doubt, however minor, that an email is not legitimate, and it's got links to somewhere, don't click the link.

type the website of your payment company direct into your own browser (Internet explorer, firefox, etc). Don't copy it from the email, but use the address you were sent by your provider i.e paypal. bank, google pay, or whoever.

The quickest way to get scammed is to click links from emails that look genuine, goes to a spoofed site that looks genuine, by which time you've given them your login .
