Gmail suspicious sign in from Blackberry Nagos Nigeria

Hello,

I live in France and use BIS service with a Bold 9780.

Today I received an alert from Google concerning a suspicious access to my Gmail Account.

Could you confirm that this access from Nigeria is a regular access or not ?

"

We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account. Please review the details of the sign-in attempt:

Location: Lagos, Nigeria

Best Regards,

Sylvain.

It doesn't sound like "regular" access to me.

Just for safety, you might change your Gmail password on your gmail account on the web AND on your device as well.

Well, actually, that looks like a RIM/BlackBerry IP address. It is your BlackBerry attempting to access your GMail account.

I wonder if RIM has a dead uncle Prince in Nigeria?

Ah...I missed the "I live in France" part. 

 

Appears to be someone in Nigeria trying to access the account with a BlackBerry.  Nice.

 

Yeah, JSanders is right (of course, I should have known that) and you should change your password.
