DropBox Spoof?

Received the following email from DropBox. Is it legit?

"Your Dropbox password has expired.

Hi there! Your Dropbox password has expired because you haven't changed it in a while. You'll need to create a new one.

Enter your email address to reset your password. You may need to check your spam folder or unblock no-reply@dropbox.com."



You google bot, hanging out in Apple articles commenting to show your low self esteem. Live with the plastic, data mining mistake you made just to think you are different and cutting edge with stuff that never works.

probably a spoof. As always, go directly to the source. Don't click on links like this that are sent via email.

I have NEVER had dropbox send me a message like that so I'd say it is a spoof.

I logged into my DropBox and wasn't asked to change my password. The email request I received was very convincing - if it is a scam, it's going to fool a lot of people.

I had to change my DropBox password a few days ago. I couldn't link a new app on my iPad to my DB account - couldn't figure out what the problem was until I logged onto the website.

Interesting, I'm on my third (if not fourth) year of paid service, and have never changed my password yet, nor have I been asked.
