I just got an interesting email suggesting someone was using my photo.
the subject was "We choose your photo for our poster."

It was kind of exciting until my scam filter kicked in

Also this other site suggest its a current scam going on now

Apparently "If visitors to the phishing or fake Google Photo website attempt to sign into it, their username and password will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the scam. The cybercriminals will then use the stolen usernames and passwords to gain access to their potential victims"

Watch out.
