When I succeed the username recovery process, I saw a suspicious address i didn't know of. How was this added to my list of known accounts? (see below)

  • I found that it was not my list of known accounts but it's a step of Google's verification process, you have to choose an email address you recognize and then confirm the code. But it seems a light-headed entity created another email-address with the same surname + firstname. – patrol Oct 28 '19 at 11:00
  • By this i'm gonna silently delete the question – patrol Oct 28 '19 at 11:01
  • Does this mean th eowner of the spurous mailaddress can get hold of your account (e.g., via password recovery)? – Hagen von Eitzen Oct 28 '19 at 19:02
