Fake emails

I received several fake emails from youtube saying my video i posted was approved, i have not posted any videos though. So thinking my account has been hacked i open the email to find a link from youtube and when i click it, it goes to youtube but then redirects to a US pharmacy drug page... Again thinking something was up with youtube, i click reply to send a message back only to discover the email is cut and pasted with the youtube icons and such.
so beware any emails from youtube regarding a video you posted because it more than likely a spam email. and i have tried to contact youtube about it, but that is next to impossible.
