Email fraud has not started yesterday. However, it's becoming more and more common. How many fake company emails have you received in the past 3 months? Chances are that this number is high. That's why Gmail has decided to tackle phishing with certified logos. This means that certified and trusted companies will have their official logos as an avatar. This way, it'll be easier to distinguish between legitimate email and phishing. For more on this Gmail tactic, see the full article in the Metro Journal.
