Anyone seen a Stay Verified email from GMB before?

A friend's client received a 'log into GMB to stay verified or in 30 days you will lose verification' email and was asking if this was authentic - I didn't know as have not seen one before but that might be because I log into client GMB's fairly regularly. I assume these are not new but can anyone please confirm they have seen them before so we can rule out phishing.

No I haven't seen these before... Google had started sending emails letting people know that unverified listings in their account would be removed, but this is something new to me..

Thanks Cherie and Colan. Tim Capper just let me know on Twitter that they did a whole bunch 6 months ago - so it might be that there is a 6 month time limit and my friend's client has just triggered that.
Either way it's doesn't appear to be phishing (today)!
