Google Alerts - Spammers Attack

Recently I got a Google alert as shown in the below screen shot. If you carefully watch the screenshot, it is different from the regular alert. Compare with the 2nd image (it is the screenshot of a regular Google alert).

google alert issue








Regular Google alert:

google alert

The similar issue was discussed in this blog before one year.

I suspect that it is a spam email because,

  1. It is not in regular format of Google alert
  2. This alert is no where related to the alert’s topic
  3. Different language other than English

Does anyone have similar email? If so please add your comments with screenshots.
