While checking my inbox today I noticed a message telling me that a new gmail address had been created based on my actual name, and linked to my existing account. Now I am quite positive that I didn't create this account; other than for billing and shipping information, I have and will NEVER intentionally give out my real name online. So what on Earth is going on? Did Google just do this without even asking my permission? Has anyone else out there seen this happen to them?
