    Never even heard about any such email. Do check mail headers and see from where it has come. I am sure, Google employee don't have so much free time to check which WP version you are using.

    These are the mail headers:

    mailed-by unified-notifications.bounces.google.com
    signed-by google.com

    Also, I did not share this particular email id other than Google Webmaster & Analytic tools...
