I got the following email last night. The wording is decent but the links embedded dont point to the real MtGox. Yes, my email does appear in the leaked Gox account info from last year.

Hope nobody falls for it...Note that quoting it here doesnt show the actual urls that were set in the html email sent, I put those in parens after the link targets in the msg.

Be careful out there!

I've never gotten one of these, you should try to unsubscribe to these emails.

Hello,

Thank you for the posting this here.  Yes, we do not send any emails asking you to click on a link to verify accounts and that is clearly a phishing email.  Please refer to this link for other phishing emails that have been sent in the past to Mt.Gox users.  https://support.mtgox.com/forums/20232703-phishing-forum
