Lads using Google Forms for their scam

Post by Rick Shaw » Thu Dec 24, 2020 8:52 am

I am not sure if anyone else is getting a load of these. I have one lad who is literally deluging my catcher account with scams all written using Google forms. The forms are empty and there is no content in them to reply to, so replying just sends him back an empty form.

I have another couple of lads that are using them to a lesser degree but they are putting questions in with fields that must be completed for the form to be returned.

Is anyone else experiencing this at all? If so have you managed to bait any of them? This one lad is sending me so many that I have considered reporting the form as Spam to Google in the hope that he will either change tack or at least stop clogging up my account. I realise this is not what baitings about but this lad is deluging my account with vast numbers of these forms. They are different scams but written using the same method and with very recognisable email addresses.

He seems to be registering these accounts in really large numbers and then dropping in the scam from lots of various scripts.

Any suggestions as this lad is really getting on my nerves as I am getting incredible amounts of rubbish landing constantly in my account.

Finally he never answers any baiting replies I send by normal reply, so for me, it's all just a waste of time.

Make a filter and mark his mails as spam or filter them to delete upon arrival.

Yes, there seem to be a spate of these in my inbox too. I think the scammers think they give their scams a touch of authenticity, to me they just amplify the falseness of the email. Even the email originators are predictable usually being <some org><numbers>@gmail.com I did try baiting one and also got nothing back. Now I just delete them and hopefully that is what Joe Public is doing.

I have started reporting the form as spam\phishing in the hope that it closes them off a bit and they go back to their old ways. Which for me pays off a bit more.

I also reply using a blank form with no content and then reply to the email also leaving it blank. Since i started doing this i notice that the numbers have dropped off a bit and some appear to have gone back to sending a conventional scam with no form. My chances of baiting have therefore improved slightly.

I do not know how many emails are being used with the Google Forms attachment. However, last year, Google started attaching the "Forms" to a bulk of emails to advertise their products. Google Forms is part of a Suite of programs that they launched several years ago, without much success. The origin was to have a competitor to MS Office. The main difference is that Google was using open source programing and originally offered it for free (MS Office is not open source and definitely not free). I am sure that some Lads are making use of this suite to make crappy forms and documents. As I believe, Google is trying to get back into the game by using their own version of spam. Most of the so-called spam is from Google itself. I have found it on incoming email that is not in any way scambaiting related. Anyway, not much you can do about it. Bait safe!

Since i started reporting the lads using forms as Spam to Google I have had a massive drop off in terms of lads using forms. For the first time today, I had no emails in my catcher account where lads were using forms.

Maybe my "ploy" worked, I don't know, but it's a lot easier to sift through the emails now and select a decent victim.

If Google were pushing the use of forms they will have made more work for themselves as I have reported dozens of lad\s using the form modality as spam. As such, i can only assume that Google has acted to close or stop these accounts forcing lads back into their "old" ways.

The forms sent to me were total rubbish and most were never set up properly, which seemed to me to indicate lads did not know how to use the forms in the first place. If other people received it they may have made their attempted scams even worse, so the takeup might have not been to the lad's advantage.

@Rick Shaw.

"The forms sent to me were total rubbish and most were never set up properly, which seemed to me to indicate lads did not know how to use the forms in the first place" - too right! Every form I bothered to examine was blank and useless. As I wrote I think the scammers just thought to themselves this will look genuine if it looks like Google are involved. They made no real effort on the form itself and as you say the recent paucity of the scam emails containing this dumb format suggest Google have got wise to it - probably with all the spam reports you sent helping. :)

There has definitely been a downturn in the number of mails I have received using forms over the last few days. So, it could well he that Google have taken measures to stop the abuse.

It could also be that the lads themselves have realised that it isn't an effective method. Firstly, they have to send them individually to a specific email address, rather than using BCC to hit multiple victims at the same time. And, secondly, it is not possible to specify a different reply-to address, so they have to rely on not losing the address they are sending the mails from or trusting the victim to copy and past the address they specify in the mail, rather than just hitting reply.
