Alert: Gmail users should be careful with spam emails sent by other Gmail users.

A strange thing has been happening lately. I'm currently testing Gmail with emails being forwarded to Gmail that are addressed to my business email address.

What I've noticed is I'm receiving a few spam messages a day from people using Gmail addresses. The one I just checked was sent using Gmail from someone based in India. Gmail catches quite a lot of spam and scams, but it doesn't seem to be capturing some spam emails from Gmail's own users.

If you use Gmail and receive an unsolicited email from a Gmail user you don't know, be very careful. It may be spam or it could be a scam. The spam emails really should be caught by Gmail's spam filter but they currently aren't.
