    The Eden Prairie connection represents the Puffin Browser servers. All connections/logins/requests to Google via Puffin Browser will appear to come from Eden Prairie, usually listed as Linux/Chrome, but sometimes as Safari.

    Did they send any links or phone numbers? If so it may have been a scam.

    What makes you think the email is genuine? It could easily be a con artist sending something to you hoping you will click on a dodgy link in the email.

    If you deleted your gmail account, all you have to do is start a new account and use a better password.
