Sanjeev Sabhlok's notes on technology, hardware, gardening

Hoax email from sc-noreply@google.com (allegedly Google Search Console Team)

I received two emails, one after the other. I am certain these are hoaxes, since there is absolutely no reference to such a thing on the internet (partiuclary the email ID sc-noreply@google.com). Further, there is no "verification file" that is cited on the "console" within the root directory of the relevant directory on the server. The thing is a hoax.
