There is a Google Docs phishing scam going on right now. Do not open Google Docs from any unfamiliar sender. Emails like this or similar are being sent, which will hack your account if you click on the "open in Docs" link:
From: amcrowe@gmail.com [mailto:amcrowe@gmail.com]
Sent: Wednesday, May 03, 2017 2:14 PM
To: hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh@mailinator.com
Subject: am crowe has shared a document on Google Docs with you
am crowe has invited you to view the following document:


If you receive a message like this or one similarly worded, you should delete it. If you click the “Open in Docs” link you will be prompted to login to a real Google Account selection screen (this portion is not spoofed). From there, you will be asked to allow “Google Docs” to access your account – - if you do this, you are transferring full access to and control of your Gmail account to these scammers.

More information on this is detailed in the following reddit discussion board threads:

Good to know, thanks!

Just added you in DW - even though I'm barely here or on LJ, I do check the posts from time to time and I'd hate to lose track :)
