Google Blocking 18m Coronavirus Scam Emails a Day

There was a barrage of phishing attacks during the coronavirus epidemic. BBC News reported that Google now blocks 18 million fraudulent coronavirus emails every day.

The company said it blocks more than 100 million phishing emails every day. In the past week, nearly a fifth consisted of fraudulent coronavirus emails. The virus is arguably the largest phishing topic ever created, according to tech companies. Google’s Gmail is used by 1.5 billion people. One of the fraudulent emails pretends to be the World Health Organization. Individuals receive a wide variety of emails posing as authorities, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), with the aim of persuading victims to download software or make a donation for false causes.
