'Delivery Failure' - Phishing for What?
« on: April 28, 2020, 12:51:41 PM »
My Spam folder is catching about half a dozen or so messages a day titled "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" from [email protected]

They read that my message could not be delivered to random group addresses.

I don't email groups. I don't belong to Google groups. Etc. etc. There's no hacked emails in my Sent Items.

The "More information can be found here" redirects to a legitimate Google link.

Dan: You're gonna need to get someone to fix my computer.                     Kim: What's wrong with it?                     Dan: It's in several pieces on my floor.
