Google Docs Scam Alert
About 90 minutes ago, there was a sophisticated GOOGLE phishing scam flooding users inboxes. If you’ve received an invite to edit a google document DO NOT OPEN, as it is most likely part of this phishing scam. Once notified, it took Google about 30 minutes to slam the door shut on the pathway the bad guys were using to trick users into giving up FULL ACCESS to their google account.
