Yes this has happened with many persons including me.

The hacker is likely to do three things
1. Send distress mail from your account.....(You can't do anything about it
except warn your contacts, change your password, logout and login with new
2. Change reply path to some fake email ID very similar to yours, but @
mail.com or yahoo.com, so that all replies (who volunteer to help the
person) go to that hacker. (Immediately go to settings----->account, see
edit inf on right of your email id and delete that fake reply path. Save
3. He may delete your address book so that you can't warn your contacts.
(always keep a csv file of your computer ready on your computer (you may
export it from your contacts in gmail), and import it immediately should
the situation arise.

Please keep in mind the vague mails you receive. The likely culprit is mail
from Google ++ (this only is google, if you just click the reply button to
check reply path (and not reply) you will find a vague email id and a fishy
website-your antivirus software may warn you) with subject line "Restore
your messages". If you click the link restore messages, you are caught. The
hacker gives the same address in Lisbon, Portugal, to any one who responds
to help.
