Email Scams Target Google & Gmail Accounts

The Better Business Bureau in Michigan has issued a warning about phony messages sent to your Google or Gmail accounts.

One of the phony messages says “You have exceeded your email limit quota.” Another tells you that “you have a deferred email.” The text is hyperlinked in both, implying that you should click for more information.

It’s advised that you not click the message, or anything associated with the message because it will load malware into your computer.

The B-B-B admits that the scam emails are tricky because they look real, and include things like Google’s address in the footer.
