Spam Called “Google Pharmacy” is In the Wild

The supposed sender is obviously fake, seeing that it used an @irs.com domain. What’s more, this particular email address has been involved in numerous email scams before.

The link cannot be clicked since the entire message body is an image. Spammers designed this spam to bypass normal filters that normally just track texts/URLs within email messages. Such a spam is called image spam.

Recipients of this spam will have to type the URL into a browser’s address bar in order to visit the domain. Once done, they are then led to a page that is not Google Pharmacy
