Experts share that scam emails can be convincing enough to trick anybody which is why you should be cautious if you're not sure where the message is coming from, reports Birmingham Live.

However, Google's security team does take 'closer looks' at scams as the Gmail website shared that users should be aware of phishing. 

According to Google "Phishing is an attempt to steal personal information or break into online accounts using deceptive emails, messages, ads or sites that look similar to sites you already use."

The scam emails may attempt to look like anything from bank emails requesting private information to asking you to download software. 

They will also typically impersonate reputable organisations with the likes of social media sites and bank accounts.
