The Google Photos Scam

This is a simple phishing scam.

The title of the email is “Your photo takes first place”.

It has a Google photos logo and specifies that you have 2 albums and 9 photos on Google Photos.

Then it offers a further 1GB of space on Google Photos free of charge.

Sounds good but it’s a scam of course.

If you click the link then it asks you to confirm your login and password first, but that’s on a fake login page and it sends your details to the criminal behind this scam.

It should be obvious that this is a scam message from the fact that the email is sent from an address that cannot be Google, such as ddgre5f2avf @dconneltw.com
