We try our best to keep a step ahead of the trends used by scammers as much as we can. We also like to report anything we spot, to help get the word out. This is one of those occasions.
For the past week or so we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of scammers using Google forms as the method of sending out their formats. In a study that took place over the space of 4 days and covered over 150 scam emails, we found that over 55% were sent via Google forms. Previously we may have seen up to 10%, but then it suddenly changed, pracically overnight. We have no idea what’s caused this switch, but it’s definitely something worth noting. If anyone has any idea why the scammers have suddenly switched to this method, please let us know.
