How to report phishing emails
Updated: Nov 8, 2018
Most of us using email for business will have encountered phishing emails.
These are attempts to mislead and fool both the email systems and recipients of an email, typically in pursuit of fraud or to spread malware.
Google do a great job of filtering bogus emails (spam, malware, fraudulent), however, a well crafted and targeted phishing email looks very much like the real deal, making them harder to filter out.
If you receive an email which you believe is not from a genuine source then you can report it using Report phishing in Gmail.
When viewing a message click the drop-down arrow next to Reply at the top-right of the message pane and select Report phishing.
This will remove the email from your Inbox and send a report to Google to help in the fight against scammers and fraudsters.
