> I intentionally entered a completely incorrect password twice assuming that if it went away it was a really well crafted phishing attempt.

That's a clever trick, I'll remember it for next time something similar happens.

I had the same paranoia as several other people in this thread (don't enter password if you're prompted unexpected or without clear reason). I had the fortune only a "trash" gmail account got locked out, not my main one. So I verified on another machine, password was unchanged, checked if I really hadn't registered any other important accounts with that email, and just gave in after an hour or so, to make the notification go away.
