GetHuman1973629's next move: try the Gmail help center again.
Gmail doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman1973629 will want to follow the link below to head to their help center. We will check on GetHuman1973629 later to make sure it's all set or try to help escalate.
Before contacting them, items GetHuman1973629 may need:
Email, Phone Number, Name of Account Holder, Password, and Recovery Email
Tip from another customer
If your email and password are changed on the account then there is no way to recover the account. This company has a very strict policy with recovering accounts and if anything is different then you cannot recover the account. You must have the original email or phone number on the account.
The issue in GetHuman1973629's own words
Google sent me a message in the subject box it said someone added you as their recovery email. Then the message says Deborah J Freeman *****@***.com wants your email address to be the recovery email if you don’t recognize this account it is likely your email address was added in error. You can remove your email address from that account. By the way, this is not me - I am *****@***.com this is the email in question. Should I be deleting it? If so let me know how to do that too.**Then there is a blue link that says disconnect email – I follow that link and it goes to find your phone – that has nothing to do with disconnecting email. I really don’t understand what’s happening. Please help me!
