Don’t Click So Fast; Google Docs Phishing Scam Makes Its Rounds
No so fast; if you received an email that looks like it's from a friend of yours - sharing a document via Google Docs, you may want to investigate before you click into it. A phishing scam is making its rounds through the web using what looks like legitimate contacts of yours.
According to sources, recipients receive an email from a familiar sender in their inbox, looking to share a document via the popular cloud-based server. Once you open the document, Google Docs appears to ask you for further information - the same sort of details it would normally ask for. Once you enter permission details, the suspect code then accesses your contacts to further propagate the scam.
If you receive a suspected email from Google Docs, experts recommend deleting it right away.
