How to Trace a Fake Gmail Account:

You have to look at the following things:

If you find any account that does not follow this format, you can conclude that it is not a real email address. Many users could use real email IDs, but their account is fake; in that case, you have to do more analysis.

2. Fake Emails Sent From Unknown Domain

Usually, fake emails are sent from unknown domains, meaning if the domain or company’s name is unknown in any email address or after searching for the company on Google, you don’t get any results. You can say it is a fake email address.

3. His Name Vs. Username in Email Don’t Match

You can check one more thing to check if any user is using a real Gmail account or a fake Gmail account, and that is their real name and their username.

In most cases, real users use their real name in their account username. Those who do not use their real name in their username basically want to hide their identity, so you can say they are using a fake Gmail account.

4. Try Checking on the Sign Up Pages

Try to log in with the username that you want to check, and if it is showing that it is invalid, then you can determine that it is an invalid email address.

Try Checking on the Sign Up Pages

To check it, go to the http://accounts.google.com/SignUp page, open the Sign-Up option, and in the username section, type the username that you got. If it shows that the email address is invalid, you can say it is not a real email address.
