You'll get a confirmation screen, with the option to send a personal note to the account owner. The account owner will get an email that looks like this:

Note: This is not an option for an account owner. If you're an owner, ensure that there's at least one other co-owner on the account. Those others can 1) remove you from ownership and 2) remove you from the account.
