New scam targeting Gmail users

Google is warning about a new scam plaguing customers. The company says a phishing email is being sent to people inviting them to view a Google Docs document. The bigger problem? The email usually comes from a known contact.

Clicking on the invitation takes the recipient to a Google sign-in that actually gives scammers access to your email and contact list.

What to do? Google is telling customers NOT to click on the phishing bait and to report it if they get such an email.
