Interesting i've noticed a great increase in various different scams
finally hitting gmail inboxes. To begin with gmail was for the most
part free of spam, phishing, scams. This week has seen the start of
gmail finally getting hit by the malicious stuff, the other mail
networks have been suffering from for years. Lots of people thought
maybe gmail is using something new which is making gmail more immune
to spam than other webbased email. It seems after the week ending, the
bubble has finally burst on the gmail beta service.

For now i'll keep pressing the "report phishing/spam" button on gmail
and hope the recent spate of inbox phishing/spam/scams are resolved by
gmail filtering, but I get the feeling its here to stay now, and
remember the gmail service is still only beta, so who knows what is
still yet to come.
